Sunday Scones

Sunday Scones

Even though its smack dab in the dead of winter and high quality fresh fruit is at a premium price, sometimes I splurge and buy some. Last week the local market had a pretty good sale on strawberries. We hadn’t had any in so long, they looked good, and the price was right. I bought two containers.

After the first container was scarfed down, I wanted to do something with the second container. Sunday morning came, it was FREEZING, might have even been snowing and I had a lightbulb moment. SCONES!

I quickly searched online for some recipes. Found one that included all the ingredients I had in my fridge and pantry and quickly got to work. Scones aren’t a particularly hard item to bake and they don’t take long from start to finish.

Using my cookie scoop, this yielded 9 scones. Just to give you a “taste” of how delicious they were here is how many we each ate. They will not last, so might be a good idea to double the recipe. I know I will when I bake them AGAIN today!

  • Husband – 5 scones over the course of 1 day
  • Me – 2.5 scones over 2 days
  • G – 1 scone
  • Val 1/2 scone

You can find the original recipe here on the King Arthur Flour site.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • Scones:
  • ½ cup diced fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons half & half or light cream
  • 2 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup diced fresh strawberries
  • Glaze:
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon water
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line one baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To make the scones: In a blender or food processor, process ½ cup of the strawberries with the sugar and half & half or cream until the mixture is smooth. Set it aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Work in the butter, using a mixer, your fingertips, a fork, or a pastry blender; the mixture should be unevenly crumbly.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the strawberry/cream mixture, the egg, and the vanilla extract.
  6. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until the dough just barely starts to come together.
  7. Add the ⅔ cup diced strawberries, gently folding them in; the dough will be quite sticky.
  8. Use a ¼ cup measure or cookie scoop and drop onto parchment lined baking sheet.
  9. Make the glaze by stirring together the sugar, water, and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle some atop each scone.
  10. Bake the scones until they're just beginning to turn golden brown around the edges, 18 to 20 minutes.
  11. Serve scones warm. Or allow them to cool completely, and store airtight at room temperature.
