Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8-10
  • 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
  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.
