Strawberry Scones with Lemon Icing Recipe

Sharing is caring!

I’m sharing a oh-so-yummy Strawberry Scones with lemon icing recipe… perfect for Springtime!  I love spring because that’s the start to the prime strawberry season in California.  If we’re lucky and it doesn’t get hot fast, strawberry season can go far into summer.  These scones made with cream are great for Mother’s Day breakfast in bed, brunch, baby showers or anytime you want to share with your family a great strawberry treat.

  1. I made these, and they tasted amazing, however, they were not as plump as yours. Not sure what happen there. Yet, everyone loved them, and deviled them.

  2. I decided to make scones for Mother’s Day this morning. Instead of strawberries, I used blueberries. My family raved about them, saying that the only scones they ever had were very hard and that they didn’t like them. They were surprised to find these moist and delicious, making them scone fans after all 🙂

    1. So happy to hear that Monica! I bet they were delicious with blueberries!

  3. This looks so delicious, it must be fattening. I had to pin this, maybe just maybe I’ll be able to make them. I’m not very adventurous in baking but they look too good to miss. Sure glad you shared these recipes. Happy weekend

  4. Oh my, these look amazing! I would love to try this out, this is something even the boys would love. Thanks for sharing.
