Sunday morning, I woke up at a very ungodly hour and couldn't go back to sleep, so I started

Rosy's Chocolate Chip Pecan Scones
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1/8 -1/4 cup sugar depending on how sweet you want them
- 1 ½ teaspoons double-acting baking powder
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
- ¼ cup chopped pecans
- 4-ounces sour cream
- 2 ½ tablespoons stick margarine or butter
- Baking Sugar to garnish
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a large mixing bowl, add in the flour, sugar and baking powder. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Create a hole in the middle of the bowl, pushing the dry ingredients to the sides. Pour the sour cream into the hole and crumble the margarine in with your fingers as well. Mix everything together with a big spoon until the dry ingredients absorb all of the sour cream and margarine. Continue to knead the dough with your fingers until the consistency is uniform.
- Sprinkle a small amount of flour on top of a baking sheet.
- Take the dough mixture out of the bowl and place it in a circular mound on top of the baking sheet.
- Cut the dough with a knife into 8 pieces by making a plus sign, and then a multiply sign. Make sure to separate all 8 wedges of dough to allow room for each piece to expand in the oven without touching.
- Sprinkle with Baking Sugar. Bake until very lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes
