3/4 cup of half and half
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp almond extract
1 large egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp chilled butter- cut into small pieces
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1 large egg white

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°. Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Cut in chilled butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix butter well with hands. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist.

Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands. Form dough into an 9-inch circle onto baking sheet, about 3/4″ thick. Using a knife, cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.
