Strawberry Scones with Lemon Icing Recipe

Thanks for Sharing!

I’m sharing an oh-so-yummy Strawberry Scone with lemon icing recipe… perfect for Springtime!  I love spring because that’s the start of the prime strawberry season in California. If we’re lucky and it doesn’t get hot fast, the 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.

Are Scones Hard to Make?

I love strawberries paired with lemons.  I think they are such a great compliment to each other and this scone recipe with the lemon glaze is just delicious.

Easy Strawberry Scones with Lemon Glaze Recipe

I know “scones” can sound intimidating, but I promise you can make them too! I think scones intimidate people because they don’t look right when you go to bake them. They look a little messy and unfinished, but something magical happens when they are baking. They are the perfect breakfast treat and the fresh strawberries make them even better!

Strawberry Scone Ingredients

  • flour
  • strawberries
  • sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • lemon zest
  • butter
  • cream
  • vanilla creamer

Learn How to Make Strawberry Scones

I start by combining my dry ingredients in a large bowl. I take the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest and mix them together.

Add the cold butter chunks to the flour mixture and with a pastry blender, fork, or pastry cutter, you break down those butter chunks until the butter is the size of a pea.

Add the fresh, cut-up strawberries to the mixture and gently toss them so the strawberries get coated with the flour mixtures.

Drizzle the heavy cream and the vanilla creamer into the bowl. Vanilla creamer is one of those items I add to so many recipes because it gives such a great flavor and creaminess to the recipe. Mix the creams into the flour mixture until it just comes together.

Then dump the dough onto a floured work surface and just knead it together. Once it’s holding together I transfer it to a parchment-lined baking sheet and pat it into a circular shape, about 8 inches across. I like to use a pizza cutter to create the wedges. I slice the dough into 8 scones. Then brush the tops of each scone with the rest of the creamer and bake.

This strawberry scones recipe would work great with other berries too.

  1. First time making these and followed the recipe to a T… the dough is extremely dry??? I’ve added another quarter cup of cream and it’s not coming together at all, as in there is no kneading a pile of flour and strawberries. What trick am I missing?

    1. Is your weather really dry right now? Scone dough is definitely a dry dough, not like regular bread dough. It will just come together enough to hold it’s shape.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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

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