Ultimate Strawberry Scones


Sorry about posting another recipe so soon. (eh, but not really:) Maybe I should just start a blog for recipes instead of bombarding you all with them, but that will have to wait for another day. When I saw these scones a little while back, I could not wait to try them, I got the recipe from one of my new favorite blogs (mostly because she posts crazy yummy recipes!) http://createdbydiane.blogspot.com. And she posted ANOTHER scone recipe today that I cannot wait to try. If you want all of the photos with the recipe, you can find the link HERE
Strawberry scone
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
(I am going to add more next time I make these)
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup fresh strawberries, diced
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup buttermilk or {1/2 cup milk and 1/2 T vinegar}
2 eggs
chocolate to melt for drizzling on top

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.(I use my food processor for that part, makes it so easy) Add buttermilk, one egg and one egg yolk {reserve white}, Mix until blended then add strawberries and chocolate chips, mix in but don't crush berries.Drop dough onto lightly floured surface and knead delicately, just until dough comes together.
Flour hands and pat dough into a rectangle and cut into triangles.
brush tops with reserved egg white.
Bake 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
When cooled, melt chocolate and drizzle on top.
