Red Velvet Scones with White Chocolate Glaze

   I was invited to a 'Ladies Day' today. I wasn't sure if it was going to work out for me to go, but it did and I'm so glad. I thoroughly enjoyed it! We spent the day sewing, crafting, taking care of babies/children, fellowship-ing and eating a delicious lunch. Everyone that went took a finger food to serve with vegetable soup in bread bowls. I decided to make something to eat with our morning coffee. Since I've been on a scone making kick lately I thought I'd to try my hand at red velvet scones. Was quite pleased with the results.
 Red Velvet Scones with White Chocolate Glaze
yield: 12-16 scones
2 cups flour
1/4 cup natural cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold unsalted butter
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp red food coloring
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375*.
 In a large bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in cold butter with pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.
In a small bowl whisk together buttermilk, egg, food coloring and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture until dough forms. On a floured surface kneed dough 8-10 times. Pat or roll out into a circle about 1/2" thick. Cut into 12- 16 wedges. Place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire racks. Drizzle or glaze with white chocolate glaze. Serve with clotted cream. 
Can be stored in an airtight container for several days.
White Chocolate Glaze:
1/4 cup white chocolate chips or melting wafers

Melt together, mix well and glaze or drizzle over cooled scones.  

Show me your ways,O Lord,
teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for You are God my Savior,
and my hope is in You all day long.
~Psalm 25:4+5
