White Chocolate Champagne Scones with Champagne Rose Icing ~ Happy Tea Party Tuesday!



Welcome to Tea Party Tuesday!

I am posting early because I am excited to 
share a new creation of mine that would be PERFECT for a 
Valentine's Day Tea Party!!



White Chocolate Champagne Scones w/
Champagne Rose Icing 




I will be sharing these with Lindsay @
The Dollhouse Bake Shoppe Blog





This creation is one I put together using a standard
scone recipe and just adding/substituting from there!

I was so proud..and excited!



I wanted to use the left over Champagne from
New Years and thought these two flavors would
be just lovely together....and I was RIGHT!

The Champagne Rose icing was a perfect
compliment to these delish treats. 

Here is the how-to:
INGREDIENTS:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream, divided
1/4 cup champagne + 2 tablespoons, divided
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 425°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add white chocolate chips.

Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup cream, egg, and champagne until combined.

Gradually pour cream mixture into flour-butter mixture, and stir until dough just comes together.

Right before using, mix extra 2 T of cream + 2 T of champagne together to brush on tops of scones prior to baking


Transfer dough to a floured surface, and lightly knead 4 to 5 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a heart cutter, cut scones, re-rolling once if necessary. 

Place scones on prepared baking sheets, and brush tops with remaining 2 tablespoons cream mixed w/ champagne. Sprinkle with colored sugar if desired

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


CHAMPAGNE ROSE ICING: 

1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1 T seedless strawberry preserves
2 T champagne (or can substitute water)
1/2 tsp rose water

In small bowl combine and whisk until smooth, drizzle over scones! YUM!

Enjoying some Nutcracker Suite Tea this week in this
lovely Rose cup, so delicate and sweet!



I am excited for all the Valentine's Day inspired
treats I plan to share this month. FUN.



I had to say a quick note regarding the loss of the Tea Time
with Wanda Lee and Pam. I know I speak for everyone when I say that we will miss them very much! But good advice follows this:
  LIFE before blog, never blog before LIFE.

Thanks for linking up - I always enjoy what you bring to TEA!

Your heart scones are absolutely beautiful!

Kathryn Ross said...

Trish - You are too clever by halves!!! Love Mr. Groundhog and such a sweet heart!! Oh! How I would love to partake like I used to. Unfortunately, Ed has been diagnoses with high cholesterol and his sugar count is high enough that he has to do a diabetes work-up. My gluten and dairy issues continue to take all the joy out of chocolate cake and sundry pastries. We are changing diet and lifestyle in a big way. Hoping to explore teatime options that fit our changing life so all is good. Any tips in this direction???
Joy!
Kathy
