Scones with chocolate and marshmallows

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter, cold and cut into small pieces
3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mini marshmallows
3/4 cup coarsely chopped graham crackers
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Add butter and toss to coat, then rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingertips until it forms a fine, sandy mixture with no pieces of butter larger than a big pea. This can also be done by pulsing the mixture in a food processor.

Add buttermilk and vanilla and stir dough with a fork until it comes together into a shaggy, moist ball. Add in mini marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate chips and knead in until well distributed. Dough will become quite dry with all the mix-ins.

Add an additional tablespoon of buttermilk if the dough is too crumbly, but do not make the dough too wet or sticky; it just needs to hold together.

Divide dough into two pieces and shape each into a disc about 1/2 inch thick. Cut each disc into quarters and arrange on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 16-20 minutes, until scones are set. Marshmallows will be browned and toasty.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.
