Sept 30 2017 /Courtesy of: OneDishKitchen
1/2 cup chopped strawberries
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 cold butter, 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.
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).
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.
To prepare the glaze:
In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and the cream until smooth. Spoon over each scone.
