7 Tbs. Half and half
1 egg plus 1 extra yolk

In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut butter into dry mixture with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture is about pea-sized bits. In small bowl, mix, half and half, eggs, and vanilla. Pour liquids over the dry ingredients, and add choc chips. Stir mixture to form a dense dough. Knead 5 to 7 turns. Form into about a 5 inch plump ball. Place the ball on a greased and floured baking sheet, and cut a shallow "X" with a sharp knife on the top of the scone. Sprinkle with extra sugar.
