I got a wonderful deal on 36 pounds of strawberries
so I have been slicing and dehydrating
making freezer jam, cutting and freezing
and baking scones!
My house smelled so delicious for about 4 days!
I just love the smell of strawberries, don't you?
The strawberry scones were a huge hit
as they taste just like strawberry shortcake
all in one bite!
Who'd you like the recipe?
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick cold butter, sliced
1/2 cup yogurt or half and half
1 cup diced strawberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients into large bowl.
In a small bowl, stir together the egg and the yogurt, set aside.
Now in the flour mixture, cut in your butter until you have coarse crumbs.
Pour in your egg/yogurt mixture and stir till combined.
Fold in your strawberries. Dough will be sticky.
Place dough onto a floured surface.
Divide dough into 2 portions and form into a circle.
Cut each circle into 8 wedges
Place on cookie sheet and sprinkle
the scones with additional sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
I store my scones in the freezer
and then pull a few out at a time.
I have also used this recipe for my
blueberry, blackberry and raspberry scones!
Thanks for stopping by...
Have a delightful week!
