"Recipes are meant to be shared"

It is my intention to add a couple of recipes here every week. Although between working and playing with my daily blog 'Thibeault's Table', I'm not always successful.

Place flour, cocoa, baking powder, sugar, salt, baking soda in food processor, pulse to mix. Cut butter into cubes and add along with the chocolate chips. Process on pulse to cut the butter and the chips into the flour mixture.

Place flour mixture into large bowl and add cream. Using a fork toss until mixture forms a ball. Do not overwork dough. Pat into a circle about 1 inch thick and cut with 2" biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on parchment paper, brush with some cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a 450°F oven for about 15 minutes. Let cool, then cover with plastic wrap to keep them moist.
