I knew I found a winner when I tasted these Strawberry Scones. They were perfect; billowy, soft, crumbly, studded with a generous amount of fresh strawberries, and topped with a drizzle downpour of sweet glaze. Pair these with a mug of coffee and you’re set! If you’ve never attempted scones, you have to know they’re easy to make! More good news: once you have a good scone base, you can make all kinds of modifications for either sweet or savory scones.

You’ve probably eaten scones, but have you tried making them? There’s nothin’ to it! And the greatest part is, once you have a basic scone recipe, you can make it a hundred different ways; everything from dessert scones to savory biscuits.

    Made these. They are really good. Super easy. I love scones but was intimidated to make them. They turned out great. Will try with different fruits. Thanks. 😊

    I omitted the sugar on top and the glaze and the end product was delicious. I’d definitely consider these more of a muffin though. The batter was very wet, and the scones were super moist (delicious, just not a true scone to me).

    Hi Natasha,
    I can’t rate these yet, but I think I did something drastically wrong. I followed the recipe, but my dough was extremely sticky. I added more flour, but then I ended up with pink scones. I used frozen butter and all ingredients were as cold as possible. How would you fix this situation for next time?

      Hi Debbie. Sorry to hear that. The most common reason would be that the wet to dry ingredient ratio was off. This can happen if you don’t use enough flour or add too much liquid. Also, be sure to use large eggs and not extra large eggs. Did you look over the recipe card to ensure everything was measured correctly?
      The dough should not be too sticky with using these measurements, and not making any substitutions. If by chance the dough is a little wet, using some extra flour on the surface should help fix this however, you want to be careful not to overwork your dough because it will effect the outcome and you’ll end up with dense/tough scones. If you have a food scale available, click on the metric button at the top of the recipe card to ensure your measurements are accurate. I hope that helps for your next attempt.

    I had to use up some strawberries and made these scones they were absolutely delicious. I only had half and half in the fridge and also added extra strawberries. I kept them in the oven a little longer because the extra strawberries added more moisture but once they browned on top they were perfect. Highly recommend this recipe. I already ate two 😊 delicious.

    delish!!!! they just came out of the oven and they are light, fluffy and moist! i don’t have a pastry blender and never have luck using forks or knives so i just use a cheese grater to shred the very cold butter…works like a dream. next time, i would probably stick the dough in the fridge before cutting into wedges as it was a bit sticky, all this is on me, not the recipe. i used lemon juice instead of the milk in the glaze just to give it a little zing but i’m sure the original glaze is wonderful, i just love lemon. thanks for a wonderful recipe! 🙂

    I’ve got a strawberry planter that is about to be overrun with fresh, rip fruit and I’m just dying to try your recipe, though I will modify it a bit as I’m a sourdough baker but you’ve given me a great framework!

    Thanks so much!

    delish! I was a little worried because it looked a little rough, but didn’t want to over work the dough — came out so good, nothing but raves and requests to make more.

    I love you and your recipes! I made this one, but didn’t have heavy cream. I used half and half instead. The scones were still excellent! This will be part of our normal weekend breakfast rotation. Thank you!

    Loved them, and my granddaughter did too. first time making scones. I think maybe I will add 1/2 cup more strawberries. It was kinda tricky fro me to get them to stick together. Maybe a dab bit more milk?

      Hi Ellen, I’m so glad you both loved them. I would recommend ensuring you don’t have too much flour if its not staying together well. Be sure to measure by fluffing the flour first with a spoon then spoon it into a dry ingredient measuring cup and scrape off the top. If you push your measuring cup into a flour bin, you will get up to 25% too much flour. Also, do not tap the flour down in the measuring cup.
