Meltingly delicious. Try adding some grated lime zest into the dough with the white chocolate--the tropical taste will make you think "summer" in the dead of winter:)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375*F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut the butter into 1/2" cubes and distribute them evenly over the flour mixture; cut butter into the mixture until crumbly.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the heavy cream, egg, and vanilla; add to the flour mixture and knead until combined.
  5. Knead in the white chocolate.
  6. With lightly floured hands, pat the dough out on a floured surface to about 5/8" thickness.
  7. Cut out circles or other shapes using a biscuit or cookie cutter.
  8. Gather scraps of dough together and repeat until all dough is used.
  9. Bake the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
  10. Cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet; transfer scones to a wire rack to cool further.
  11. Serve warm, or cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Very nice scones and easy! I used skim milk instead of cream and "swirled" chocolate chips instead of regular white chocolate... and they came out great. I'll make these again!
