Ingredients

  • Biscuit Dough:

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 1

    tablespoon sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 5

    tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

  • 3/4

    cup milk

  • Filling:

  • 3

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

  • 4

    ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry blender, a sharp knife, or your fingertips work the cubed butter into the flour mixture until it resembles pea-sized crumbs. Add milk and stir gently with a fork until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a floured work surface. Flour your hands and shape dough into a ball. Gently knead it about 8 times. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a rectangle about 13x11 inches, sprinkling with more flour as needed to prevent sticking. Spread the softened butter over the top of the dough. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Top with the chopped chocolate. With a long side facing you, gently roll the dough up jelly-roll style, ending with seam on bottom. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 10 - 12 even slices. Place the slices on the paper-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until biscuits are lightly browned. Serve warm, with butter if desired.
