Small Batch Strawberry White Chocolate Scones

This lovely strawberry scone recipe makes 4 buttery, delicious scones. Made with fresh strawberries and white chocolate chips, these fruit filled scones are perfect for breakfast or dessert. So easy to make too!

Other than the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, there aren't many things that will wake me up and have me rushing to the kitchen early in the morning. However, the scent of homemade strawberry white chocolate scones will do just that.

Scones are lovely. They're slightly sweeter than biscuits and although scones are ideal to serve for breakfast, they are also a very special treat to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea.

Ingredient Notes

See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  • Strawberries: Use 1/2-cup of fresh strawberries. You can use frozen and thawed strawberries if fresh is not available to you.
  • Flour: 1 cup of all-purpose flour is the standard amount of flour needed for homemade scones. You will also need a small amount for your hands and for dusting your work surface
  • Baking powder and baking soda: Gives the scones a little lift.
  • Salt: For flavor.
  • Sugar: I recommend using 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
  • Butter: Use 4 tablespoons of cold, salted butter. Make sure to keep the butter in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. Cold butter is essential in making the best tasting scones. It ensures the scones will be flaky with crisp edges.
  • Milk: Use any percentage cow's milk (whole, skim, 1%, or 2%). You can also use almond milk, half & half, or cream instead.
  • Egg yolk: 1 egg yolk is all that's needed in this recipe. It adds flavor and structure. See below for ways to use the leftover egg white.
  • White chocolate chips: Strawberries and white chocolate go so well together! I love adding in 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips to the scone batter it's truly a spectacular addition!

For The Glaze

  • Powdered sugar: Use 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.
  • Heavy cream: Although I use 2 tablespoons of heavy cream or heavy whipping cream in my scone glaze, you can use half & half or milk instead.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to use cold ingredients.
    • The secret to flaky scones is to start with cold ingredients. Make sure your butter, egg and milk are all cold. Just like making pastry, the fat has to be cold. If the butter gets warm, it melts and mixes into the flour.
  • Don't overwork the dough.
    • Once you add in the liquid (egg, milk, etc.) stir the dough very little to combine. Remember to handle the dough as little as possible. Over-mixing the dough will lead to scones that are rather chewy instead of light and flaky.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Store Scones?

This strawberry white chocolate scone recipe yields 4 delightful scones. They keep well in the refrigerator but are best eaten in a day or so after baking them.

Yes, you can! Make and shape the dough into scones and freeze them on a baking sheet, then transfer the frozen unbaked scones to a zip-top bag, and bake them straight from frozen, adding a couple of minutes to the baking time.

  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Line a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.

  • Gently stir in the white chocolate chips and the chopped strawberries.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead very lightly and form a circle. (Add a little more flour to the dough if the dough becomes too sticky to handle). The circle should be about 5-inches in diameter and 1-inch thickness.

  1. Oh wow I’m off now to make the scones with strawberries which have been sitting in the fridge for a few days.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Colleen,
      The egg adds flavor and structure to the scones. I’ve never made scones without an egg so I can’t tell you how they will turn out – perhaps more like a biscuit? If you try them without an egg, please let us know how they turn out.

    1. Hi Bonnie, I’ve only tested this recipe using all purpose flour. I can’t tell you how the scones will turn out using any ingredients other than the ones listed in the recipe.

  2. Lois Milligan

    The 4 delish scones were just that , AND, I ate all of them. Now I must do it all again so my family can join in the fun. Thx heaps!! Lois/Georgia gal..

  3. The BEST scone I have ever had!!!!! So happy I stumbled upon this recipe. I will be making these again with strawberries and trying raspberries and blueberries also. THANK YOU!!!!!!

  4. 5 stars
    So, I tried these last night with strawberries and no white chocolate and no icing. They were awesome. I used heavy whipping cream in place of the milk and had to add a little more (about 2 tablespoons) as the batter was not moist enough to hold together. Will be making them again with peaches next time. The batter is a great basic batter for any fruits.

    1. Hi Lea,

      I’m so happy you enjoyed the scones – it is a good, basic recipe and I love your idea of making them with peaches!!
      Thanks so much for taking the time to write.

      Joanie

      1. I was wondering if you could use blueberries for stawberries as I am allergic to stawberries and you answered my question ! Thank you so much! LM
