RASPBERRY AND WHITE CHOCOLATE WHOLE WHEAT SCONES

I often purchase raspberry and white chocolate scones when I am at the coffee shop so I decided it was time to find a suitable recipe. I love this recipe because it is healthier than the coffee shop's with the addition of whole wheat and oats. And even with these additions it still makes a considerably light scone; however you easily could substitute all purpose flour for the whole wheat flour and oats if you would like an even lighter scone or you could try Strawberry and Rosemary Scones, if you prefer a more dense scone you should try my sister's recipe Oatmeal Scones with Blueberries. I'm not picky; I'll take a scone anyway I can get it!

Raspberry and White Chocolate Whole Wheat Scones
Makes 12 servings

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, in pieces
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup skim milk
4 ounces of white chocolate, chopped
1 cup raspberries ( fresh or thawed if frozen)

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a food processor, add the flours, oats, baking powder,sugar and salt and pulse a few times. Add the butter, pulse a few times. Add egg, pulse a few times more and then add the milk, pulse until a dough has just formed.
Fold in the chocolate and berries.


If you don't have a food processor mix dry ingredients in bowl. Cut butter pieces into dry mixture with pastry blender or fork. Mix in beaten egg and milk until just blended and then fold in chocolate and berries.

Now at this point I made a mistake and I dropped the dough on a floured surface so I could cut the dough into triangles...it don't recommend this process; the dough is really sticky.
The best bet is to use a large cookie scoop and drop the dough a few inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown (make sure you check the scones during baking, the time completely depends on how big you make them).

Nothing better than the warm humid Butterfly House on a cold winter morning!
