Chocolate Chip Scones

These are YUMMY.  Sydney's favorite part (aside from eating them) was squishing the butter into the flour mix.  I cut them in half (with a sharp knife) after they cool because they are pretty big.

6 tablespoon (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/4" pieces
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole grain flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used white chocolate swirled with milk chocolate)
3/4 cup buttermilk (I used soy milk!)
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon demerara sugar (I don't know what this is so I just use sugar)

Preheat oven to 400F.  Spray baking sheet and dust with flour, shaking off excess.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add butter: rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Mix in chocolate chips.

In a medium bowl, mix milk, egg yolk, and vanilla.  Whisk to combine.  Add milk mixture to dry ingredients.  Stir until combines (dough will be sticky).  Using floured hands, turn out dough onto a floured work surface, form inot a 7 to 8 inch round, and cut into 8 wedges.  Use a small spatula or the side of your knife to transer wedges to prepared baking sheet, spacing 1 inch apart (it's ok if wedges are mishapen).

Brush scones lightly with milk and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake until scones are golden and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
