I recently ventured to Keys Cafe and partook of one of the most delicious scones ever. I felt it my solemn duty to replicate the experience for the rest of my family, and this is what I came up with.
I seem to have developed a bad habit of adding chocolate to basically every recipe I can find. However, it certainly tastes good! Though my inspiration (the Keys Cafe scones) omitted the chocolate, I threw some in anyways. Berries go much better with chocolate than without it.
For those in my family who do not enjoy dark flavors, I used a simple white glaze. Both will be in the recipe, and I hope you enjoy!
Strawberry Scone Recipe:
4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, grated
1 cup sour cream (I used vanilla yogurt)
1/2 cup (about 5-8 berries) chopped strawberries
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips (I chopped up some milk chocolate stars)
Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the grated butter until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add in chocolate and chopped strawberries.
In a separate bowl, whisk sour cream and eggs. Pour into dry mixture, and mix until well combined.
On a well floured surface, roll dough out into a large circle, about 1/2" thick. Cut out triangles, and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 13-17 minutes, or until golden. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the white sugar drizzle
White Sugar Drizzle:
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Mix ingredients together adding more milk or sugar until it reaches desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled scones with a spoon or fork. (If scones are not fully cool, the drizzle will not harden up, it will melt into the scones.)
A dark chocolate drizzle can be made by melting 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips for about 45 seconds.
