Scones are a little tricky for me.  Sometimes they turn out tender and buttery.  And then sometimes I end up with dry hockey pucks.  It has to do with overworking the dough.  Luckily, these turned out as the former.  The strawberries were little bursts of sweetness dotted throughout the scones.

 

Strawberry Scones

Strawberry Scones

Ingredients

3 1/2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
12 Tbs cold butter, cut into pieces
1 c chopped strawberries
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 c milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat parchment with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in 3/4 c of the strawberries. Form a well in the middle of the mixture, add the egg and milk, and stir until just barely combined.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly until crumbs are incorporated. Pat dough down to a two-inch thickness. Sprinkle the remaining strawberries over the top of the dough and lightly press them into the surface. Cut dough into circles approximately 3 inches in diameter. Place circles onto parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake scones until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. Yum! I love me some scones… and strawberry ones… even better!

  2. I absolutely love scones. It’s the perfect brunch with a cup of tea.

  3. Oh wow! I love the fresh strawberries in there. So pretty!

  4. These scones look delightful, and perfectly light and flavorful! I was hoping to see some scones during #BrunchWeek… :) We just made savory scones in my house this weekend, but now I’m craving berry scones like yours.

  5. LOVE these! You don’t see strawberries in scones very often; that should change! Happy Brunch Week!

  6. Had they turned out to be hockey pucks, they still would have been some of the prettiest pucks I’ve ever seen! These look like spring in a scone to me. Perfection.

  7. I will give them a try very very soon

  8. I would love having these with some jam and a cup of tea anytime!
