Strawberry White chocolate Scones
1 cup of diced fresh Strawberries
1 cup White Chocolate chips
1/2 cup light cream ( i just use half n half)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
6 tbsp cold butter
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place diced Strawberries on paper towels to absorb the excess juice. Combine cream and vanilla in a small pitcher and set aside (refrigerate)
3. Combine Flour, salt, sugar, nutmeg, lemon zest, and baking powder in a bowl. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Stir in Strawberries and chocolate chips until mixed. Create a hole in the center of Flour mixture. Pour cream mixture into the hole and quickly stir together until just mixed. Let dough rest for 2 minutes.
4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and satiny, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer dough to baking sheet and pat into an 8-inch round. Use a serrated knife and cut the round into 8 wedge-shaped pieces. Separate the pieces, leaving at least a 1/2 inch in between each. 5. Bake in preheated oven until tops are light brown and crusty, 16-18 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and let cool 20 minutes before serving Note: I made the dough into a rectangle and cut it into 12 pieces.The first time I did the round with 8 and the scones are huge. So that is your choice as far as how far you want them to go.
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp of lemon zest
2 tbsp of cream
whisk until smooth, may need to add more sugar for desired thickness.
