Servings: 4 scones
- 1/2 cup strawberries , chopped
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons sugar , plus 1/2 teaspoon
- 1/4 cup salted butter , cold. Cut into small pieces (1/2 stick or 4 tablespoons)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
FOR THE GLAZE
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar , sifted
- 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream
Place the chopped strawberries in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar over the top and stir gently. Set bowl aside and let sit while you make the dough.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Line a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar.
Using a pastry blender or your hands, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and the egg yolk. Pour into flour mixture and stir until just combined.
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.Cut the scones into 4 triangles and place on a small baking sheet lined with silpat or parchment paper.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool on baking sheet for a minute, then transfer onto wire rack to continue cooling.
- 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.
