Strawberry chocolate scones

woke up this morning at it was snowing and it looked cold out. The snow was beautiful and made it feel like Christmas already ( November 10th) ;P
I warmed up the house by baking strawberry chocolate scones. My husband who's not a fan of scones actually liked these :) 
 Easy and quick recipe

Here's the recipe

2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter
1 cup chopped strawberries 
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (more to drizzle on top )
3/4 cup heavy cream 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Cut the butter in with a pastry cutter or 2 knives until pea-sized lumps remain.

Using a spatula, fold in the strawberries and chocolate chip until the berries are coated with flower.

Pour in the heavy cream and gently stir to combine.
Use your hands to gently kneed the dough to get in into a ball shape.

On a lightly floured surface, flatten the ball into a circle about 3/4 inch thick.
Use a large knife and cut the circle into 8 wedges (like a pizza)

Place on baking sheet about an inch apart and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden in colour.
Once they are baked, cool completely and drizzle with chocolate. Enjoy
