Peppermint Candy Cane and White Chocolate Chip Scones

Peppermint Candy Cane and White Chocolate Chip Scones
With all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays I try to make sure that I don't forget about breakfast and these peppermint candy cane and white chocolate chip scones are the perfect breakfast for the holidays! Scones are super easy to make, especially with a food processor, you simply mix all of the dry ingredients, add the chilled butter and process until it forms small grains (or cut in the butter by hand), gently mix in the wet ingredients, form the dough into the shape that you want and then bake it. The key to good scones is to not over mix once you add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. For these scones you add festive crushed peppermint candy canes and white chocolate chips and the aroma as they are baking is absolutely divine! The peppermint candy cane pieces and white chocolate chips in the light and fluffy scones is simply amazing! These peppermint candy cane and white chocolate chip scones are a complete pleasure for any holiday breakfast!

The amount of butter is unclear. Is it 1/2 cup (1 stick) or 2 sticks (1 cup )?

You don't have these listed as an appetizer but that's how I think I'll use them. I want to place them on my new $200 artisan wood board that I'm also giving away on my blog right now. Thanks for another great recipe.

I tried this recipe with cocoa butter, cocoa milk and agave syrup instead of sugar, and the result was just fantastic!
