These days, scones are sold in nearly every coffee house in town. But, rarely have we ever found a good one that was not freshly baked. To that end, who has the gumption to rise early and meet with the baristas and bakery delivery truck at 4 a.m.? You’d be better off rising late (even 7 a.m. works!) to make up your own batch of Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Scones.
What makes our scones so great? For starters, all you need for these fabulous home-baked goodies is our 16-ounce mix, plus about 1⁄2 cup of water! The fact that this recipe is ‘just add water,’ means you can mix ‘em up as bleary-eyed as all get out—and still end up with artisan-bakery-quality results. By 7:15, your kitchen will be filled with the aroma of fresh-baked scones—minus all the strangers that typically fill the local coffee shop.
Our moist (but still pleasantly cakey) scones have plenty of semi-sweet chocolate chips. And, they’re kosher, to boot. You’ll also find that these cakes fair just as well with your morning coffee or tea, as they do split in half length-wise and stuffed with cream and strawberries for a quick, romantic dessert.
Whether you are Joan who likes her “skohn,” or John who likes his “skahn,” we are certain you’re going to pronounce our Chocolate Chip Scones the most authentic, ultra-convenient Mix you’ve ever had the brief pleasure to bake. Drop in to your neighborhood TJ’s and cop a box now for a slim $3.69. Makes ten scones.
