- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 egg whites , slightly beaten

Heat oven to 425 ℉. Line baking sheet with parchment or spray with nonstick spray.
In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture looks crumbly.
Stir egg whites and half-and-half into flour mixture; toss with fork to moisten ingredients. Stir in kiwifruit and 1/4 normal cup white chocolate chips. Stir gently just until mixture holds together.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead 5 to 6 turns. Pat dough into 8 inch circle. With sharp knife, cut into equally-sized wedges. Arrange wedges, about 1 inch apart, on baking sheet. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until bottoms and edges are golden brown.

Recipe tip: A serrated peeler works best for peeling kiwifruit.
