Strawberry White Chocolate Almond Scones

I asked JJ what he wanted me to make for a snack and he said scones! Okay Bud!! I will make you some scones. He loves strawberries, so I went with a strawberry white chocolate almond scones. I thought they would be a perfect scone for Valentine’s Day. The combination of strawberry, white chocolate and almond paired so well together. So I can’t wait to make this same combination in a cake soon.

When it comes to scones, I always use frozen butter. It really is the best way to make scones, you can see the butter melt while the scones are baking. This helps keeps the scone moist. I mean I think dry scones are well gross. I remember someone giving me a scone one time and it was so dry. Like so dry it was stuck in my mouth. The dough might seem dry when mixing it together, but once the strawberries are mixed in you will see that it isn’t dry.

The kids came home from school and couldn’t wait to try them. I told them they I was packing them for snack for school. They were so excited. I did give JJ a little try of them and he loved them. The kids took them to school and apparently all their friends wanted them too.
