Notes

Pro Tips and Timesaver Shortcuts

  • Use the middle shelf of the oven for best results. 
  • It's ok if the fruit gets a little crushed while blending into the batter. It makes for a lovely fruit scone.
  • You can use a food processor in place of the pastry blender to save some time.

Variations, Notes, and Substitutions

  • If you do not have a pastry blender, two forks will work as well.
  • You can divide the dough into two circles and make smaller size scones. Just ensure that the scones are about the same size so they will cook evenly.
  • Heavy cream substitute for the milk for a richer scone
  • You can replace the white chocolate topping with a dark chocolate topping or a lemon icing.
