Strawberry White Chocolate Scones

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.

Glaze

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.

Enjoy! They are delicious!!
