Raspberry White Chocolate Scones

Katelyn Theofanis
These Raspberry White Chocolate Scones have the perfect flavor balance of tart and sweet. The scones themselves have a delicate sweetness which pairs beautifully with the white chocolate drizzle on top. Enjoy one of these with coffee for a yummy treat!

Ingredients
  

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter cold and cubed
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract optional
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

Egg Wash

  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream

Instructions
 

  •  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. 
  • With a pastry blender or two forks, cut in the cold cubed butter until pea-sized pieces remain.
  • Using a spatula, stir in the ½ cup of white chocolate chips (reserving the 2oz for the garnish) until incorporated.
  • Whisk the vanilla into the heavy cream. Pour half of the cream into the butter-flour mixture. Using your hands or a rubber spatula, stir to incorporate. The dough will be dry and just subtly moistened. 
  • Add the raspberries and remaining cream. Again, gently mixing just until moistened and incorporated. Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a lightly floured surface. 
  • Gently knead the dough until it comes together and shape into a flattened disk.
  • With a bench scraper portion the dough into 8 wedges. Place the wedges of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate the scones for at least 30 minutes. 
  • While the scones are chilling, preheat the oven to 400°F. 
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and tablespoon of heavy cream. Brush the egg wash onto each scone, you will not use all of the egg wash. 
  • Bake the scones for 20 - 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Garnish

  • Once the scones have cooled, melt the remaining white chocolate. Transfer the melted chocolate to a pastry bag or zip-top bag with the tip cut off. Drizzle the white chocolate over the cooled scones.

Notes

  • STORE - Store scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For extended shelf life, store them in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • FREEZE - For best results, freeze before garnishing with white chocolate drizzle. Transfer cooled scones to an airtight container or freezer-safe zip-top bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw completely before garnishing with the white chocolate.
