I like coconut, but I LOVE toasted coconut. I took What’s Gaby Cooking ‘s recipe and toasted the coconut. The first time I made these was two weeks ago and I’ve already made them two more times. Everyone who tries them thinks they are ridiculously good and so totally easy! I’ve never heard of grating butter instead of cutting it in with a pastry blender, but it is now one of my favorite kitchen hack.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespooons butter, cold
1 cup shredded coconut, toasted (or more)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or more)
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a sheet pan.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Grate in butter. Stir in chocolate chips and coconut. Add cream and stir until just combined. Split dough in half and press down into two disks. Cut into 8ths and arrange on baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Combine powdered sugar and milk together to make a glaze. Glaze warm scones and top with additional toasted coconut.
