Strawberry Scones

strawberry scones

Out of all my scone recipes, this one is the very first I ever made, and by far, my favorite. They’re simple and simply sweet.

Ingredients:

for the scones:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsps. baking powder
  • 8 tbsps. cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cups half & half
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8-10 strawberries, stems removed & diced, 2 tbsps. reserved
  • 1 tablespoon half & half

for the glaze:

  • 1-2 tbsps. of diced strawberries
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tsps. half & half

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 4oo degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and butter. Pulse until the mixture becomes coarse and crumbly and transfer to a large bowl. In a small bowl, beat the egg and stir in the half and half and vanilla extract. Pour the egg/ cream mixture into the dry dough and stir until just combined. Stir in the diced strawberries.

Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface, sprinkle with a little bit of flour, and fold a few times. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the circles and place on the prepared baking pan. Brush each scone with half & half and then bake for 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

In a 2 cup liquid measuring cup, add the diced strawberries and using the back of a spoon, mash slightly. Add the powdered sugar and stir in the half and half until desired consistency is reached and pour glaze over the top of scones.

      You won’t be disappointed, Julia. You can’t go wrong with fresh strawberries and I’ll let you in on a little secret: I’ve made these with frozen strawberries before and they’re just as good. Bonus!
