Chocolate Chip Scones

Sure, you can take any basic scone recipe and toss chocolate chips into it.  But I wanted to impress my youngest son. His favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe happens to be the Toll House recipe on the back of the bag.  So, I took those ingredients and turned it into a scone!
