2cupsunbleached all-purpose flour
2eggsbeaten (reserve 1 tablespoon)
1/3cuphalf & half cream
3/4cupstrawberriesdiced, freeze after dicing until ready to use
1/3cupwhite chocolate chips
sparkly sanding sugar
a little half & half or milk as needed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk together flour, baking powder, granulated sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender or fork cut in butter until small crumbs form. Stir in eggs, half & half, lime juice and zest to make a stiff dough.
Lightly flour a surface and turn out dough. Knead in semi-frozen strawberries and white chocolate chips until the dough holds together. Divide in half and shape into flat circles. Cut each circle into quarters (or 6 pieces for small scones) and place on a lined baking sheet.
Brush with reserved beaten egg and sprinkle with sparkly sanding sugar. Bake for 15 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
To prepare glaze stir together icing sugar with lime zest and juice. Add a few drops of half & half cream as needed to reach drizzling consistency. Place wire rack on a baking tray or parchment paper for easier clean up. Drizzle glaze over scones.
