Oreo Scones

Oreos and white chocolate are a perfect pair in these perfectly delicious sweet scones.

This post is part of the summer edition of the Freaky Friday Recipe group.  If you've forgotten how Freaky Friday works, a group of bloggers get randomly assigned to cook/bake a recipe off another blog, write a blog post showing your chosen recipe and posting on the specified day. It's a lot of fun and a great way to try something a little different and learn about how others (and for me, others on the far side of the world!) like to cook.

The goal was to try a summer inspired recipe but being the middle of winter I wasn't exactly super excited by any kind of chilled desserts! I figure Oreo scones can be eaten outside! Picnic idea perhaps? 

I was assigned to LeMoine Family Kitchen. I'm a long time fan of Angelas blog. Her Italian heritage shines through in her amazing, family friendly recipes.  Angela has been running her blog since 2012 so she's got SO much on offer! Like you'll find here on PicNic, there's a mixture of main meals, desserts, and baking so there is absolutely something for everyone. And with two boys in the house you can rest assured her recipes are child approved!

Angela loves making scones (and I love eating them), she's got a real flare for it, with so many gorgeous flavours like dried cranberry white chocolate, Strawberry Lime, Pecorino, Garlic, and Herb, Citrus with Orange Lime Glaze the delicious list goes on! After a very tough decision I went with the Oreo Scones.

Of course it's not all scones over there, want a main meal? I'm loving the sound of Bruschetta Grilled Chicken, a snack? Why not try some Spinach Artichoke White Bean Dip. A drink? Easy Caramel Cold Brew Coffee sounds refreshing!

These scones are perfect! Exactly how you want your sweet scone to be. Not overly sweet, light, flavoursome, and the oreo and white chocolate take them to the next level! I mean, Oreos can go in anything right?

Oreo Scones

Makes approx 8 large scones

2 cups plain flour
¼ cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup buttermilk
1 egg
85 g cold butter, small dice
1 heaping cup smashed oreos
1 cup white chocolate chips, divided
egg wash {1 egg whisked with a little water}

1. Preheat your oven to  200 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit).

2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a food processor fit with the dough blade.

3. Add in the cold butter and continue to mix until the butter becomes incorporated and the pieces are about the size of peas.

4. Add the dry mixture to a bowl. Stir in ½ cup of the chocolate chips and the oreos.

5. In a measuring cup mix together the buttermilk and egg. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated.You do not want to overwork the dough.

6. Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface {too much flour will leave you with a heavy dense scone}. Gently press together to form into a square or rectangle about 1 inch high.

7. Cut into 6-8 even squares or rectangles. Place onto a lined baking sheet and brush with the egg wash.

8. Bake for approx 22-24 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool completely.

9. In a small bowl add the remaining ½ cup of white chocolate chips. Microwave in :20 second intervals until melted. Drizzle over the cooled scones.
