White Chocolate Black Pepper Scones

{{totalReview}}
These scones are made to be served with homemade jam. But you can still enjoy them with your favorite jam. They can even double as shortcake biscuits to serve with fresh berries and whipped cream.

Instructions

  1. Make the dough

    • In a mixing bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper until well combined. 
    • Add in the butter and mix using a pastry cutter or your fingertips until the mixture is a rough crumbly texture but pieces of butter are still visible.
    • Stir in the chopped white chocolate to coat with the flour.
    • In a separate bowl whisk the egg then whisk in the milk and vanilla. 
    • Add the milk mixture to the flour and stir until the dough just begins to come together, and then turn it out onto a work surface (sprinkle with generous amount of floor to prevent the dough from sticking on to the surface).


  2. Knead the dough

    • Using your hands, flatten and fold the dough 2 or 3 times, until the dough is an even texture. 
    • Form the dough into two discs about 2.5 cm (1-inch) high. Cut each disc into 6 wedges.  


  3. Bake

    • Preheat oven to 200 °C (400 °F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
    • Place the scones an inch apart on the prepared baking tray and brush the tops with milk. 
    • Bake the scones for about 15 minutes until they have browned evenly.


Plate and Serve!

The scones are best served the day they are baked, but can be re-heated the second day for 5 minutes in a 150 °C (300 °F) oven to re-fresh them
