Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup strawberries washed and quartered
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup flour for dusting over your work surface

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In the measuring cup used to measure out the buttermilk, whisk the egg with the buttermilk.
  • Add cubed butter to the flour mixture and using 2 knives or a pastry blender cut in the butter, until the dough is crumbly and resembled peas.
  • Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and mix well using a fork or wooden spoon.
  • Add the strawberries and chocolate chips to the dough and roughly mix everything together until well incorporated.
  • Turn the dough over onto a floured surface, and form the dough into a round disk. Cut the dough into 8 triangles.
  • Place the scones onto your prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush the scones with buttermilk and sprinkle with a bit of sugar if preferred.
  • Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

  1. The disk I rolled out was about 10 inches in diameter and about 3/4 inch in thickness. You can make yours thicker or thinner depending on preference.
  2. You can use frozen strawberries.
  3. You can store these in the freezer for a month.
  4. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
