  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until a coarse meal is formed.
  4. Whisk together the egg yolk and cream in a small bowl, then stir into the flour mixture just enough to blend (do not overmix).
  5. Dump dough onto a lightly floured surface, dust your hands lightly with flour and knead dough gently 5 times, just to bring the dough together.

  7. Gather scraps, reform your dough circle and cut remaining scones out.
  8. Bake on large baking sheet lined with parchment and brush lightly with a bit of milk.
