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.

    I love these! I first made them in 2021 and they are my go to scone recipe since. I don’t have any heavy cream. Think milk + extra butter would turn out ok?

    Last Christmas i added vanilla and rubbed lemon zest into the sugar and we had lemon vanilla scones. Did a glaze with powdered sugar and lemon juice too.

          I’m making these scones again and came back here and noticed the 3 star rating on my comment. That was an accident! These scones are the best! Absolutely 5 stars. Sorry about the accidental rating, you can delete if you want.

    Hi there
    I have some frozen little Alpine strawberries, do you they would work ?

      Hi Kay, I think frozen strawberries might be a little moist for these. Fresh fruit is best for scones.

    I am looking forward to making them. Just curious! If I don’t glaze them, do they still need to be put in the fridge. I would like to bring them on an outdoor trip and a refrigerator isn’t going to be possible.
    Thank you!

      Hi Sharon, hey are best within the first 1-2 days, they end to dry out if longer than that. You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 days, or refrigerate them for up to a week. I hope that helps.

    As a 6 month follower and one who has made dozen or so of your recipes, these are fantastic and were a real hit with family! Thank you for this! As a moderate cook I did question whether we should bake with the parchment paper or not as it wasn’t stated and I can be literal to a fault. (or I missed it?) I did however do that but next time I think I would pull the dough together on a rubber mat then move as it did get messy. Thank you Natasha for sharing and helping me not be so boring in the kitchen!

      Hi Susan, I baked on the same parchment paper that I shaped the scones. You’re absolutely right that I did not specify that in the recipe. Thank you for letting me know. I am fixing that now.

    These scones are great! I used two cups of strawberries. I didn’t have any cream, so used 1/2 n 1/2. I cooked them 15 min. Then drizzled the powdered sugar mixture on top.
    Nothing like biting into a moist scone with a warm bite of strawberry. 5 stars

    This recipe turned out excellent!! While making the glaze, I added a few fresh strawberries, reduced the cream to 1/2 Tablespoon and put it in the mini blender. Pretty and delicious.

          I have not tested that to advise but I know that generally scones do well frozen before baking so I think it could work. Let us know if you experiment with it.

    Recipe could use more sugar. I’d add a total of 4 TBSP next time I bake and see if that helps. Overall, recipe is okay .
