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.

      Hi Joanne, I have not tested that but I saw someone shared this “These scones are incredible! I just made them and they came out perfect. I also added 1 Tbsp of lemon zest and it had the perfect pop of flavor. Thank you so much Natasha!”

    I followed the recipe to a T and the scones were pretty dry, not flaky. I think the recipe could’ve used a bit more butter.

      Hi Z, I haven’t tried that substitution, so I can’t speak to that. Substitutions may hinder the recipe outcome. I always suggest making a recipe as written the first time around.

    Hi Natasha
    Not familiar with a term used in your recipes. What measure is a ‘cup’? New to your blog, incidentally which I love. I live in England and everything is measured in metric or imperial.

      Hi Mike, We’re in the US and use cups, but if you scroll down to our printable recipe card, most of our recipes have a metric conversion option on the printable recipe card. We are currently working on adding metric measurements to all of our recipes, but it is taking some time to add them one at a time. Thank you so much for being patient! In the meantime, check out our post on measuring which should help.

        usually a one cup measurement is eight (8) oz or two hundred fifty (250) ml any liquid

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

    Another amazing recipe! I’ve never made scones before and now I want to have coarse sugar on hand at all times so I can make these every week! I didn’t have strawberries but I did have fresh blueberries! I added the same amount of berries as the recipe calls for and added one tablespoon of lemon zest. I can’t wait to make different variations of this recipe! Thank you for all you do!

    For an easy way to shape scones…line a cake pan with plastic wrap. Plop in dough and press to level, turn out, pull off plastic, slice and bake.

    New follow of yours! I absolutely love your recipes! I’ve been looking for a good scone recipe and wanted to ask if I can substitute the strawberries with bananas and add a little Nutella for a Banana Nutella Scone! I’d appreciate any feedback on measurements! Sending lots of love and support from Guam 🇬🇺

I’m always looking for a new scone recipe and this is so fast and easy, but most importantly, DELICIOUS. Only thing I did differently was use buttermilk instead of half n half or heavy cream….cause I’m wild like dat turned out really good. thanks for the post and so excite for the better home opportunity.

      Hi Selena, make sure to measure flour the same way to ensure you aren’t adding too much flour and making sure the wet and dry ingredients are balanced. If it seems to dry to stick together, I would drizzle slightly more cream. Also, make sure not to over-bake which can cause these to turn out dry.

      I just couldn’t risk a mistake using sour cream with these so went to store for heavy whipping cream. These are so light and and melt in your mouth scrumptious! Can’t imagine baking scones from any other recipe! Thank you Natasha!! Oh and it was my first try at scones.
