This one is a request from Laura Kate.  I made these a lot at Grove City because they are ridiculously easy.  Once, I baked them a few at a time in a dorm room microwave!  (The microwave could bake, though.  Don't actually microwave them!!)  The nice thing about this recipe is that you can use what it calls for or substitute hot chocolate for the coffee, toffee or butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips, almond extract for vanilla, etc.  The possibilities are endless!  These scones have a softer texture than most and are amazing with coffee.  You can substitute coffee creamer or half & half for the heavy cream, which I do every time to lighten them up a bit.  (I love using flavored creamer for an added kick.)  Enjoy!
