  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tsp cream of tartar
  • 4 tbsp butter diced
  • 3 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup finely crushed Walkers Shortbread Vanilla Cookies
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar.
  • Using your fingertips, crumble the butter into the flour mixture.
  • Add the lemon zest, crushed Walkers Shortbread crumbs and the chocolate chips.
  • In another bowl combine the cream, vanilla and lemon juice.
  • Pour into the flour and stir well with your hands until the mixture forms a sticky ball.
  • Dump the dough out onto a well floured work surface and form into a flat rectangle about an inch thick.
  • Using a sharp knife dive the dough into equal sized triangles and place on the prepared baking tray close to one another.
  • Brush the scones with the milk and sprinkle with the remaining crushed cookie crumbs.
  • Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the scones feel firm when pressing your finger on top of them.
  • Whisk the powdered sugar with the lemon juice and drizzle over the scones once they have cooled.
