Recipe: Strawberry Scones

It's strawberry season! I love finding wonderful recipes for my strawberry addiction!

Strawberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

·       2 cups all-purpose flour
·       2 tablespoons sugar
·       1 tablespoon baking powder
·       1/2 teaspoon salt
·       5 tablespoons cold butter
·       1-1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream, divided
·       1 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries, chopped
·       GLAZE:
·       2 cups confectioners' sugar
·       3 tablespoons lemon juice
·       1 tablespoon butter, melted
·       1 tablespoon 2% milk

• In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1-1/4 cups cream just until moistened. Fold in strawberries. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
• Pat into a 9-in. x 7-in. rectangle. Cut in half horizontally. Cut each half into four rectangles; separate and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with remaining cream.
• Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. For glaze, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, butter and milk; drizzle over warm scones. Serve warm. Yield: 8 scones.

I made this recipe exactly as above (except for the rolling out the dough and cutting into rectangle shapes; I ran out of time and just formed the rectangles with my hands. Messy, but it worked just fine!) I took these delightful goodies to a playdate where they were all eaten up. A good sign of a great recipe!
