Strawberry Scones Recipe
I knew I found a winner when I tasted these Strawberry Scones. This recipe makes 12 scones and each is perfect; billowy, soft, crumbly and studded with a generous amount of fresh strawberries, then drizzled with a simple sweet glaze.
Strawberry Scone Ingredients:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup (8 Tbsp or 1 stick) unsalted butter (chilled and diced)
- 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (chilled)
- 1 Tbsp milk to brush the top
- 1/2 Tbsp course sugar to sprinkle the top
Ingredients for Easy Scone Glaze:
- 2/3 cup Confectioners (Powdered) sugar
- 1 Tbsp Milk
How to Make Strawberry Scones:
Preheat oven to 400˚F. In a large bowl, stir together 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Add 1/2 cup diced butter and cut it into flour using pastry blender until mixture resembles pea-sized coarse crumbs. Gently toss in chopped strawberries. Make an indentation in the center and set bowl aside.
In a second small mixing bowl, beat 2 eggs then stir in 1/2 cup heavy cream. Add the egg mixture to flour mixture and use a large spoon to gently stir just until moistened. Do not over-mix.
Place dough onto generously floured sheet of parchment paper. Pull dough together and shape it into a 3/4-inch-thick circle. Cut into 12 equal wedges and pull them apart slightly (at least 1/2" apart).
Brush wedges with 1 Tbsp milk, sprinkle with coarse sugar and bake at 400˚F for 15-16 min, or until puffed and golden.
How to Make Scone Glaze Recipe:
Stir together 2/3 cup powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp milk. Easily thicken glaze by adding more powdered sugar and thin it out with more milk. Drizzle glaze over scones and serve scones warm or at room temperature.
