Blueberry, White Chocolate & Toasted Walnut Scones









Blueberry, White Chocolate & Toasted Walnut Scones 

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (spooned into cup & leveled with knife)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus additional for sprinkling
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
3 large eggs, divided use
1/4 cup yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt; whisk in 6 tablespoons sugar until combined. Knead in butter, using fingertips, until well incorporated and mixture starts to clump together, forming pea-sized lumps. Gently stir in blueberries, walnuts and white chocolate chips until combined.
In a small bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, yogurt and vanilla until combined; sprinkle into flour mixture and toss together using a fork.

Turn shaggy dough out onto a floured surface, and gently pat and knead until it comes together, handling as little as possible. Form two (6-inch) rounds. Insides of the rounds should be thicker. Slice each round into 6 equal triangles and place on cookie sheets. Whisk the addtional egg in a small bowl and brush evenly on scones; sprinkle with additional sugar if desired.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks until ready to serve.

Makes 12 scones

  3. Emily, this looks like a great recipe--especially with the addition of yogurt, which is my new preferred ingredient. ;) I loved the Oh Nuts Eric post, BTW--it was one of my very faves.

  10. I'll never become a vegetarian, I've decided, because I love burgers too much :)! I love burgers that are loaded, especially if they have bacon yum!

    Scones are another favorite of mine, anything carby works for me :).

  18. Yay for a tripod and new camera lens - very exciting! Your scones loo perfect! I have definitely been guilty of over-working the batter, so thanks for that tip.

    Can you believe I've never made a burger myself before? My hubby always does it, so I don't think I'm qualified to enter the BBB contest :)

  19. I love scones, I might make some this weekend for a breakfast treat.
    I have a tripod but I am usually too lazy to set everything up. I know that is terrible.

  20. I have a bowl full of blueberries in the fridge...this recipe would be great. Looks delicious like everything you bake!

  21. Mmm, these sound like delicious scones! I love scones but don't make them as often as I should.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ohh, new camera equipment. Eric sounds like a cool guy!
    Awesome scones-it's almost bby season around here and I think I'll have to give these a go when the time is right.

  24. Your pictures are already good now, imagine with the new equipment! Gorgeous scones, the ones made with yogurt are my favourites!

    ReplyDelete
  25. These look wonderful! I hope I'll get to try them. I've had trouble with the scones I've made recently being more like muffin batter, making it hard form them. This scone has the perfect combo of flavors, if you ask me!

  26. Awesome review... I mean what more do I need to hear? :)

    You'll be sleeping? Can't a little coffee at 10am wake you up :)

  27. Your scones look amazing. Great job.

  28. Yum! There's nothing like a good scone, and these are a far cry from the bland items sreved up at ladies afternoon teas in Oz.

  29. these look so good! when i was in toronto last week, i saw a bakery called sugar plum, and thought of you :) i'm sure their stuff wasn't as good as yours, though!!

  33. I'm typically not a huge fan of scones, but these look super yummy! Especially w. the blueberries & white chocolate

    ReplyDelete

    The scones look great, very nice combo of flavours.
    Thanks for the tips on Starbucks, I may just make it. It's 10:45!

  38. The scones look amazing and I love blueberry scones. I will have to try this recipe. I haven't made scones in years, probably because the last time I made them they turned out bad. I don't think I could lose with your recipe though =)

  39. You just reminded me that my tripod is missing :(

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yummy, I need to attempt to make these, I never made scones!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like this version of Cheeseburger in paradise better.

    I'm glad you have a boyfriend that cusses and buys you nice things. You deserve that, hunny.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't cuss thattt much! :D

    Glad you like your tripod, dear. Thanks for the scones. Ilysm.

  43. Great fun with the new tripod! These look awesome! Loving the scones... and the burgers! Too much good lovin' all in one post, Lady! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. That totally looks like something I would and could stuff in my face! I'll have to try this recipe out cause I LOVE scones!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You do too! You have a foul mouth. But I love you.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I made these scones with a few alterations because it was what I had on hand, but I used dried cranberries instead of blueberries, dark chocolate chips instead of white, and almonds instead of walnuts, and they were delicious! Great scone base! The yogurt really gives these a great consistency, yum :-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oooh, a tripod! How fancy.
    I love scones, though I rarely make them. (Buttermilk biscuits tend to win out in the scone vs. biscuit battle.)
    These look lovely, and not too dense. I like the idea of walnuts- they so often get overlooked in the world of baked goods.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yum. Another recipe to try with all the blueberries I'm going to buy soon!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Woohoo for new camera equipment!

    I wish I lived next door to you so I could be that annoying neighbor that pokes my head through your window every day and says, "Watcha cookin'?" in hopes of trying all your creations.
