Strawberry Scones






Delicious, tender scones with a sweet strawberry glaze. I thought these were better on day two. They held together a bit better and were nice and moist. Normally I cut scones into triangles but this time around I went with rounds and I really like the shape better. They seem to have less burnt edges this way.

I adapted a recipe found at Heather Cristo for this recipe. I simplified her recipe a bit and I loved the result. Enjoy!

Strawberry Scones
Makes 12 scones

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cups cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • Strawberry Glaze:
  • 1 strawberry, minced (I used 2)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cream

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Pulse in the cold butter until crumbly.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the egg and cream. Pulse in the cream mixture until you have a smooth, wet dough. Transfer to a floured surface and lightly form into a disc. Cut the disc into wedges or cut out circles with a cookie cutter. 
  3. Brush the tablespoon of cream on the tops of the scones.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Take the scones out of the oven and set them aside to cool slightly while you make the strawberry glaze.
  5. In a small bowl whisk together the strawberry, powdered sugar and cream until you have a smooth glaze. Pour 1 tablespoon of glaze over the top of each scone. Let set up and serve warm.

  3. Ali, I love scones, and these are so pretty for Spring. ♥ I like that you used a food processor for the dough- it's how I make my pie crust. And now, it's how I make scones! ;)
