Recipe Ingredients for White Chocolate Macadamia Scones

1.5 cup Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Enriched, Bleached
9 tsp Sugars, Granulated
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
0.5 tsp Salt, Table
6 tbsp Butter
0.33 cup Milk, Buttermilk, Fluid, Cultured, Lowfat
1 large Egg, Yolk
0.5 tsp Vanilla Extract
0.5 cup, whole or halves Macadamia Nuts
5.33 tbsp White Chocolate Chips

Recipe Directions for White Chocolate Macadamia Scones

  1. Position rack in the top third of the oven and preheat to 425 deg F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Prepare the syrup for sugar garnish by mixing the 3 TBSP sugar into the 1/3 cup of boiling water and set aside.

  2. Sift first 5 ingredients into a large bowl. Give it a good mix so that the flour mixture is uniform. Add the cold butter and mix together with your hands until the mixture looks like coarse sand or coarse meal. I find that if you rub the flour and butter between your hands it works a lot faster.

  3. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg yolk and vanilla. Pour into flour/butter mixture and mix until it comes together. I know, it's sticky. Add in the nuts and chocolate chips and give it a good knead in the bowl.

  4. Dust your working surface with flour and turn the dough out of the bowl. Knead it a couple of times. Pat down and flatten it out into a disk about 1" thick. Cut into 8 slices and place on lined baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 13-14 minutes until golden brown on top. Makes 8 scones.
