I love scones, these are delicious and this recipe is quick and easy to make.
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
4 squares white chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup raspberries, or mixture of berries (fresh or frozen); today we used frozen raspberries and blueberries
3/4 cup milk (can add a little more if needed)
1 tbsp coarse sprinkling sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 400F.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Use pastry blender cut butter into flour until crumbly (sorry, forgot this picture).
Stir in chocolate and berries.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, add milk and stir with a fork to make a ragged dough.
Turn out onto counter top and knead just until the ragged bits are incorporated into the dough (the berries make a pretty colour). Gently pat into a 3/4 inch disc and cut into wedges or circles (using a medium-large cookies cutter).
Place on an ungreased baking sheet, sprinkle top with coarse sugar, if using.
Bake in preheated over for 12 to 15 minutes until bottom is golden and edges and top are starting to brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
