  • 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)

Instructions

Scone

  • 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 mixture 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.

Icing

  • Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, milk and lemon zest. Mix until smooth.
  • Once scones have cooled for 20 minutes drizzle with lemon icing.
