White Chocolate Almond Scones

Recipe by Chef Doozer

A friend of mine served these at a playgroup coffee date several years ago. I finally got around to making them again today. They are so yummy!

I am so happy to have found this recipe. I adore any kin of "almondy" pastry and these fit the bill. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of flattening the dough balls slightly before brushing with egg white and baking. I mixed in 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup almonds. These scones are not too sweet. I might add either a bit more sugar or more chips next time. (And believe me, there will be a next time!)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut butter into flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt with a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  2. Stir in one egg, almond extract, and half and half. (Can add more half and half if the dough isn't coming away from the bowl.)
  3. Add white chocolate chips and almonds. I find it easiest to mix the dough with my hands.
  4. Take the dough in your hands and form 8 large balls. Set the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet. They don't have to be smooth -- the dough will be sticky to work with.
  5. Brush scones with egg white.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Immediately remove from the cookie sheet and cool on a cooling rack.
