Bubble Biscuits

When I went to knitting class the Thursday before my birthday, Mom had a special surprise for me.  A childhood favorite: chocolate bubble biscuits.  Dense like a scone, small in size but big in cinnamon and chocolate.  But Mom didn’t stop with one pan of bubble biscuits.  She made a second batch, a batch for me to take into work.  That’s right.  I was sent to school with birthday treats for my classmates.  And my fabulous co-workers loved them.

I’d forgotten how good they were, how sweet they were, so I had to dig up the recipe for myself.  And I of course had to share it with you.

Chocolate Bubble Biscuits

– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 3/4 cup sugar, divided
– 4 teaspoons baking powder

– semi-sweet chocolate morsels
– 2/3 cup milk

3. On floured board, knead dough lightly. Roll dough into 16 balls.
4. Preheat oven to 375°F.

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Holy amazeballs Brooke. Do you think your mom would make a pan of these for my birthday and ship them to Maryland?
