- 2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
- 1/3 cup sugar + 1 tsp for sprinkling
- 1 tsp + 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cold
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
- 3 Tbls water
- 1 Tbls olive oil
In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Use a grater or chop the butter into small pieces and use your fingers to work in the butter until the flour and butter mixture resembles coarse meal. A pastry cutter might also come in handy for this part.
In a small bowl combine sour cream, water, olive oil and 2 tsp baking powder. Using a fork, stir the sour cream mixture into the flour and butter mixture until large dough clumps form. Add chocolate chips (or blueberries, raisins or whatever else you can think of). Be careful not to over-work the dough.
