How To Make Strawberry, Vanilla And White Chocolate Scones:

What you need to do:

For the Scones:

  1. Rip open the tea bags and tip the contents into a bowl. Fill with just enough boiling water to cover the tea leaves; this will create a lovely aroma as the tea steeps.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. The butter should be fridge cold. Using your fingers, work the butter into the dry mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add the yogurt and tea to the flour mixture. Mix together, but make sure you don’t over work it.
  5. Chop the white chocolate into small pieces before folding evenly into the dough.
  6. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 190 ° C.
  8. Using a rolling pin make into a round shape approximately 20 cm across. Cut into 6 triangles. Place on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper. At this point, I made sure they were pressed back into a perfect triangle shape.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until brown.
  10. Let cool completely before icing.

For the Icing:

  1. Combine confectioners sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Adjust the consistency with more milk or sugar. It should be stiff enough so that it flows, but not so much so that it rolls right off the edge of your scone.

For the Drizzle:

  1. To make the drizzle, chop up the chocolate into small pieces and melt in the microwave until smooth. White chocolate has a tendency to burn if overheated, so do this in small bursts, checking and stirring as you go.
  2. Spoon the melted chocolate into a piping bag and drizzle over the icing.
  3. Leave to harden.
