Strawberry And Chocolate Scones

Total Time


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cake and pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream, plus a bit more to brush tops


Preheat oven to 400 degrees, if using convection, set to 375. Place some parchment paper over a baking sheet and set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together both flours, salt, sugar and baking powder. Using a pastry cutter, cut in butter until the butter becomes the size of peas. Mix in the chocolate and strawberries.

Using a fork, whisk the cream, vanilla, and eggs together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add in the cream mixture. Stir with fork until dough comes together. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead just a few times to mix well.

Pat dough into a 6 inch square about 1 1/4 inches thick, and using a floured knife, cut into 4 squares, and then cut these squares in half, on the diagonal, to form triangles.
