Strawberry White Chocolate Scones

Strawberries are such an amazingly wonderful summer treat. While they taste amazing on their own, you can use them in so many different recipes. Everything from smoothies to pie taste great when made with strawberries. It’s a fruit that you can literally use in every meal throughout the day. If you’re a bit tired of strawberry smoothies for breakfast, why not bake these Strawberry White Chocolate Scones? They are the perfect treat for a Sunday brunch!

Strawberry White Chocolate Scones

Of course, these scones aren’t just good for breakfast. These would be wonderful served in the afternoon with a glass of iced tea. You could even serve flavored teas that would compliment the flavors inside the scones. For example, an orange tea would be fabulous. If you’re having the girls over, why not make these scones and a pitcher of iced tea to help you beat the heat?

If you’re making this in the fall or during the winter months and don’t have fresh strawberries on hand, frozen will work. The key to working with frozen berries in desserts like scones is to thaw them and then get off as much of the liquid as you can. Fold the berries in last and you won’t have colour bleed that turns the scones pink.

Also, if you don’t like strawberries, use whatever berries you prefer. Blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries would all work wonderfully in this recipe. You could even try making more than one batch with different berries in each. You could also do a mixed berry flavor.

Strawberry White Chocolate Scones

Scones are easy to make and can be enjoyed throughout the day. Whether you’re looking for a yummy breakfast or a late-night snack, you’ll truly enjoy the flavour of these scones. And, if you make too many, pop them in the freezer before topping them with the white chocolate. Reheat in the oven and then drizzle on the white chocolate. You’ll have a quick and tasty dessert in a matter of minutes.
