Vanilla Chai Scones

If you like chai tea or chai tea lattes then these are the scones for you!

1 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking soda
4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tartar (on the baking aisle with the spices)
1 tsp salt
6 individual bags of spiced chai tea
1 cup cold butter
1.5 cups white chocolate chips
1 cold egg
2 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or line a large baking sheet with parchement paper.

2. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and baking soda. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl mix together flour, white sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Cut tea bags and empty ingredients into mixture. Cut in butter until flour resembles course meal.

*This can be done by pulsing flour mixture and butter in a food processor, squeezing butter and flour mixture with your hands, by using a pastry cutter or two knives. Food processor or hands work the best!*

4. Stir in white chocolate chips.

5. Mix egg and vanilla into sour cream. Pour and stir in flour mixture.

6. Turn dough onto a heavily floured surface. Knead briefly. Either: Form into two mounds and cut into triangles OR roll out dough to appx .75inch thickness and cut using a cookie cutter.

7. Bake 12-15 minutes until bottom is golden brown
