Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup un-salted butter very cold
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, cleaned and cut in to quarters

Egg Wash:

  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp water

Glaze:

  • 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract https://www.servedfromscratch.com/vanilla-extract-from-scratch/
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and prep a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.  
  • Cut the butter into cubes and add to bowl.  Cut in using a pastry cutter or a fork until it's all incorporated and is like a coarse meal. 
  • In a medium bowl whisk egg and add milk and cream.  Slowly add to large bowl and mix gently, just enough to incorporate it all and it's all moistened. 
  • Gently fold in strawberries with a large spatula. 
  • On a large clean and flour surface, add dough. Gently knead it a couple of times and then roll or shape it into an 8 in round.  Cut into 8 even triangles. 
  • Add triangles to the parchment lined baking sheet a brush with egg wash (optional egg wash).  
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes until they are a light golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool. While they cool, make glaze by mixing heavy cream, confectioner's sugar, vanilla extract, and salt.  Drizzle over scones and enjoy! 
  • Store at room temperature for 2 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Notes

Substitutions:  
Flour:  Use self rising flour 1:1 but omit the baking powder and salt. 
Strawberries: Use frozen, just chop and only add right before you're ready to shape and cut dough to prevent added moisture being added to dough.
Butter: Use salted butter and then omit the added salt. 
Prevent Spreading: Make sure that your dough is very cold. To ensure, cool dough in fridge for 10-15 minutes before shaping and cutting.
Prepare in Advance:  Make dough and before cutting, you can cover and store in fridge overnight and bake the next morning.  
Freeze Dough: Shape and cut scones and then on a plate or tray add to freezer for 10-15 minutes. Then transfer them to a freezer safe container and store for up to 3 weeks.  Bake straight from freezer by adding a little time to baking time, or let thaw overnight in fridge and then bake. 
Freeze Scones: Once scones are glazed and cooled, add to freezer safe container and freeze for up to 2-3 months.  To thaw, remove from freezer and let sit out on the counter for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.  You could also warm them in the microwave for about 30 seconds or in the oven on a baking sheet  at 300 degrees for 10 minutes.
