Strawberry Scones

Fresh strawberry scones are good for breakfast, snacks with coffee or anytime.


  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pats
  • 12 strawberries, diced
  • 3/4 cup half and half


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.  Add butter and crumble with your hands or a pastry blender.  Toss in strawberries and coat with mixture.  

Add half and half and fold together gently until mixture comes together and forms a soft ball.  Do not over mix.  Turn out onto floured surface.  Pat into a 1” thick circle.  Use a sharp carving knife to cut into 8 triangles.  Place on parchment paper.

Bake 16-18 minutes.  Remove scones to cooling rack.   Whisk ingredients for glaze and after they have cooled for 10 minutes, pour glaze over.
