I love using fresh strawberries in recipes. They are one of my favorite fruits.

Strawberries are wonderful in savory dishes, folded into a great chicken salad or added to your breakfast, as with these lovely breakfast scones.

What I adore about scones, is that they contain so much flavor, yet they don’t have anywhere near the sugar that a muffin or cake would.

To make these Strawberry Scones you will need:

  • all-purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • sugar
  • salt
  • unsalted butter
  • strawberries
  • heavy cream
  • bowl
  • food processor or pastry blender
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper or silpat

To begin, preheat your oven to 425°.

Combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in your food processor, fitted with the metal blade. Give them a couple pulses to mix them together.

Cut cold, unsalted butter into small pieces, and drop them into the processor.

Pulse them together until it forms a crumbly mixture, with no pieces of butter larger than a pea.

Alternatively, you could do this in a bowl with a pastry blender, instead of your food processor. The processor simply makes this quicker.

Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and set it aside for a moment.

Trim and dice strawberries into 1/2 inch pieces.

Add the strawberries to the crumb mixture and fold them in.

Add in heavy cream and gently mix it in with a rubber spatula until a dough begins to form.

Transfer dough and all of the messy flour mixture in the bowl, to a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough with floured hands just until it comes together into a sticky ball.

Pat the dough into a circle that is about 3/4 inch thick.

Cut the dough into 8 wedges, like you are slicing a pie. Place the wedges on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper or a silpat.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Transfer the scones to a wire rack, and cool for about 10 minutes.

  1. Dear Constance thanks for the strawberry fix. In Jeremiah 29:11 you will find that plans for your life have already been perfected for you. You and your husband have a beautiful spirit regarding the mishaps you have recently experienced. It is well with my soul. Be blessed.

  2. About a year ago, I was on a huge scone kick. It’s been awhile and clearly, that needs to change. I need to make these scones!
