During Spring I love strawberries and I think they pair just beautifully with lemons.
I know “scones” can sound intimidating, but I promise you can make them too! They are the perfect breakfast treat and the fresh strawberries make them even better!
Strawberry Scones with Lemon Icing
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup strawberries (finely chopped and dried well)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
- 6 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter (cut into little cubes)
- 1/2 cup cream
- 2 tablespoons vanilla creamer (liquid (coffee creamer))
- 1 tablespoon cream (for brushing on top of scones)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
|Preheat your oven to 425. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet.|
|Combine your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest in a medium sized bowl. Whisk till combined.|
|Add your chilled butter cubes into the flour mixture and use either 2 butter knives or a pastry cutter to cut the butter pieces till they are pea-sized.|
|Add your diced strawberries to the flour mix and gently mix till they are coated with flour.|
|Drizzle your cream and creamer into the flour mixture and stir till just combined.|
|Dump your combined mix onto a floured surface and knead a few times, just till it comes together. Then move your kneaded dough to your parchment paper lined cookie sheet.|
|Press your dough into an 8" circle and then use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut it into 8 pieces (like cutting a pizza).|
|Brush the scone tops with some creamer. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.|
|Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, milk and lemon zest. Mix until smooth.|
|Once scones have cooled for 20 minutes drizzle with lemon icing.|
