2 1/4 cups unsifted, unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 cup. softened butter
1 cup milk (you can use whatever is on hand, milk, heavy cream, non fat milk)
3/4 cup semi sweet choc. chips
Heat oven 425 degrees F. and grease baking sheet lightly.
1. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients; with pastry blender cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs.
2. Mix together and pat out on floured board to a 7 inch circle. If the dough is a little sticky, use flour on the board to incorporate extra in the dough and to keep it from sticking as you pat it out. Cut into 8 wedges with knife and transfer to your baking sheet and pop in the oven. Bake 20 minutes.
Remove from baking sheet to cool off.
