As strawberries are in season now, I am always looking for ways to turn them into desserts. These strawberry and chocolate scones are unbelievable. Scones are becoming my favorite thing to eat for breakfast, and these ones make a perfect breakfast. They turned out gorgeous and delicious and they were really easy to make, honestly I don’t think it took me more than 15 minutes to make them.
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. I used about a cup of fresh strawberries that I cut into small pieces, basically into quarters.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt together. You’ll need half a cup of cold butter for this, cut it into small pieces and add it to the flour mixture.
Next, using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter into the flour, until it resembles peas. I actually end up using my fingers after I cut the butter into small pieces.
To the strawberry bowl, I added the chocolate chips. Oh man, don’t they look yummy.
In another small bowl mix the buttermilk and the egg together.
Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and using a fork or wooden spoon mix everything together. Mix the chocolate and strawberries together and add them to the dough.
Roughly mix in the strawberries and chocolate into the dough, making sure everything is well incorporated. Turn the dough over onto a floured surface and form it into a round disk that’s about an inch in thickness.
Using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut the dough into 8 triangles, just like you’d cut pizza. If you want to make them smaller, you could cut the dough into 12 triangles.
Place the scones on a cookie sheet that’s lined with parchment paper, or a silpat.
I also sprinkled some sugar on my scones, but you can totally skip that step. Bake them for about 20 minutes or until nice and golden.
Look at them, they are absolutely gorgeous. Chocolate and strawberries are an amazing combination. I really hope you give them a try.
