Bourbon Chocolate Chip Scones

Prep time

5 min

Cook time

20-25 min


8 scones




United Kingdom


  • 2 cups AP Flour
  • ½ cup White Sugar
  • 2 ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ cup Butter, cold (1 stick)
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream or Buttermilk*
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 ½ tsp Cook's Bourbon Extract
  • 1 ½ tsp Spiced Vanilla Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon*
  • 1 ½ cup Chocolate Chips


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Gather ingredients and have a baking sheet lined with parchment paper ready to go.  

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and blend together thoroughly. 

Step 3

Using a pastry blender or a fork, blend your cold butter into your dry ingredients until you have a crumbly mixture.  Then add your egg (if using, see notes below), heavy cream or buttermilk and bourbon extract, plus add-ins like your chocolate chips.  You can make this recipe your own by adding in anything you would like in this step.  We just use chocolate chips, but walnuts or pecans are yummy too!

Step 4

Using your hands, work the dough until all the wet ingredients are thoroughly combined with the dry and butter.  You will end up with a pie dough like batter.  Lightly flour your counter surface and turn your dough on to the counter.  With floured hands, press yor dough into a disc shape, about 8" across by 1 ½" thick.

Step 5

Using a rocker style pizza cutter or long knife cut, your scone dough disc into 8 triangles.  Place each triangle on your baking sheet with 2" between each scone.  Brush each scone with cream or buttermilk.  Bake at 400 degrees for 18-24 minutes, until golden brown.  Ovens vary greatly so watch for a golden brown color and remove.

Step 6

Notes: you can omit the egg in this recipe if you prefer a drier, more crumbly scone.  The egg will create a more cake like texture.

Cook's Bourbon Extract and Spiced Vanilla Sugar can be purchased from in our ‘For Your Tastebuds’ Collection.  See link below.

Alternately, you can substitute vanilla extract for the Bourbon extract.
