Dried Cranberry & White Chocolate Scones
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, small dice
  • ¾ cup Craisins® Dried Cranberries
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips, divided
  • egg wash {1 egg whisked with a little water}
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a food processor fit with the dough blade.
  3. Add in the cold butter and continue to mix until the butter becomes incorporated and the pieces are about the size of peas.
  4. Add the dry mixture to a bowl. Stir in ½ cup of the chocolate chips and the dried cranberries.
  5. In a measuring cup mix together the buttermilk and egg. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated.You do not want to overwork the dough.
  6. Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface {too much flour will leave you with a heavy dense scone}. Gently press together to form into a square or rectangle about 1 inch high.
  7. Cut into 6-8 even squares or rectangles. Place onto a lined baking sheet and brush with the egg wash.
  8. Bake for approx 22-24 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool completely.
  9. In a small bowl add the remaining ½ cup of white chocolate chips. Microwave in :20 second intervals until melted. Drizzle over the cooled scones.
