Salted Dark Chocolate Pear Scones
Serves: 8
 
Ingredients
  • 1¼ C all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading and shaping
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 2½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 1 C milk or heavy cream
  • 1 C fresh pears, peeled, cored, and cut into pieces
  • ½ C dark chocolate chips/chunks
  • Heavy cream, for brushing
  • Sea salt, for topping
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  4. Add milk, pears, and chocolate chips/chunks. Stir just a few times until dough comes together.
  5. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle dough with flour and gently knead into a ball. Gently pat down dough into a 1-inch tall circle. Use a well-floured knife to cut dough into 8 wedges. Transfer wedges to prepared baking sheet.
  6. Brush lightly with heavy cream and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until scones are golden brown and puffy. Cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
