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:
