Nectarine and White Chocolate Chip Scones
  • 2 cups flour +1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup COLD butter
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon dry buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup diced nectarines (about 2 nectarines)
  • 1/2 cup Ghiradelli White Chocolate Chips
  1. Cut the nectarines into small pieces and toss then in a tablespoon of flour. Set aside.
  2. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add milk, vanilla eggs.
  5. Stir nectarines and white chocolate chips into the mix.
  6. Knead on a floured surface (or parchment) lightly and pat into a circle, cut with knife.
  7. Add additional flour and flour your hands so dough doesn't stick so much.
  8. Transfer to parchment lined baking sheet. (I use two pastry scrapers to transfer the cut circle, then I separate them on the parchment lined baking sheet.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
