Description

I’m not a member of the ‘scone fan club.’ They tend to run on the dry side in my book, but this recipe has me reconsidering a membership. I tried something similiar at a Dallas tea room and loved them, and I’ve been playing with supplies since the introduction. I think these hit the nail on the head!

Ingredients

  • 1-¾ cup Flour
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2-½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 5 Tablespoons Butter, Cold And Cut Small Squares
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream
  • ½ cups White Chocolate Pieces
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ½ cups Craisins
  • ⅛ cups Butter, Melted
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar Sprinkles/or Sanding Sugar

Preparation

1. Use a pastry cutter to mix the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cold butter.
2. Add remaining ingredients (except melted butter and sanding sugar) and stir until combined, and then knead for 1 minute until everything is well combined.
3. Divide dough in half and create 2 small rounds. Flatten each round to about 8 inches, and then cut each round into 8 wedges (cut like you would a pizza) for 16 total pieces.
4. Place wedges on a baking stone, or Silplat-covered pan. (You can also use a greased baking sheet, but watch these closely for browning bottoms.)
5. Brush each scone lightly with butter, and sprinkle with sanding sugar. (I like Wilton’s Clear Sparkling Sprinkles.)
6. Bake for 12-14 minutes in a 400-degree oven.

Ooooh, so good! I made these to give to the kids every morning for breakfast. I am the rockin’-est Mama, ever! ‘Least that’s what my kids think since I made these delicious scones for them. Definitely making them again.
