I actually witnessed 80 degree weather last weekend which makes me believe that spring has finally arrived.  Spring is synonomous with berries in my mind and so when I bought a big box of strawberries that were as sweet as candy, I could hardly wait to bake them into a tasty breakfast treat.  I had some friends coming over for coffee and these Strawberry White Chocolate Scones were the perfect treat to serve.

I would never in a million years choose white chocolate over real chocolate just to snack on, but there is something special about creamy, buttery white chocolate when it is paired with sweet, juicy berries that works beautifully.  These Strawberry White Chocolate Scones are subtly sweet thanks to the fresh berries and taste even a little sweeter with the addition of almond extract.  The white chocolate chips melt slightly while the scones bake so that their creamy richness infiltrates each bite.

    I made strawberry yogurt scones the other day, recipe soon to come! But these look fab. I seriously regret not putting in some white chocolate too now 🙁
