Never had scones with butterscotch? Flaky, buttery dough plus sweet, buttery filling equals one scone you’ll be baking again and again.


2 cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
1 cup butterscotch chips
½ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


1) Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

2) Place flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor; pulse until mixed. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Add butterscotch chips, milk, and vanilla; pulse until mixture forms a dough that just holds, being careful not to overmix.

3) Scoop dough using a ¼-cup measuring cup; drop gently onto baking sheet. Bake until light golden, about 20 minutes.
