Perfect Strawberry Scones


These Strawberry Scones are a great way to use up the strawberries growing in your garden. Have you ever found that you wait ages for strawberries to ripen and then suddenly, they all seem to ripen at once! When you find yourself in a situation where you have more strawberries than you know what to do with, here’s an idea: make these strawberry scones!

Start by combining dry ingredients. Cut in the butter until you have a mixture that resembles coarse bread crumbs. Add cream and vanilla and bring the dough together in a ball. Be careful at every stage that you do not overwork the dough. Work quickly so the butter doesn’t get warm. Shape into scones and bake. As the scones cool, make a glaze by combining confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla.

To make Strawberry Scones, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Perfect Strawberry Scones

Steps to make Perfect Strawberry Scones


Heat oven and line a baking sheet

Preheat the oven to 400 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Mix dry ingredients


Combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, ¼ cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt in a large mixing bowl.


Add butter


Add 6 tablespoons of cold unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch cubes and cut into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse bread crumbs.


Bring dough together


Whisk 1 cup of heavy cream with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Pour the cream into the bowl with the flour and bring together to make a dough ball. Do not overmix.


Add strawberries


Carefully add the strawberries to the dough and mix.


Shape dough


Transfer the dough ball to a floured countertop and gently press it into a 1-inch circle. Don’t overwork the dough.


Cut into scones


Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 triangles.


Freeze briefly


Place the scone triangles on the prepared baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to ensure the scones don’t spread while baking.


Brush with cream and sprinkle sugar


Brush the tops of the scones with the reserved tablespoon of cream and sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar.




Bake the scones in the oven for 18-23 minutes until golden brown on top.


Leave to cool

Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.


Make glaze


In a small bowl, combine 1½ cups of confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and ½ a teaspoon of vanilla together until smooth.



Generously drizzle glaze over the cooled scones and eat immediately.
