Sweet, tender scones stuffed with fresh and juicy strawberries. These Strawberries and Cream Scones are perfect for a special summertime breakfast, snack or brunch.
If you’re looking for a different use for all those fresh strawberries you’ve picked (or picked up at the store) you can end your search right here. These Strawberries and Cream Scones are the PERFECT twist on a strawberry classic. And a twist to the classic scone, I might add.
I don’t know if you know anything about the classic strawberries and cream dish but it’s rather unappealing to me. Basically, it’s a bowl of sliced strawberries in a pool of cream. With some sugar. So by calling these strawberries and cream scones, I’m using a rather loose reference to the classic. The scones have strawberries and some cream in the glaze – Boom. Strawberries and Cream Scones, naturally. And that, my friends, is what’s so much fun about cooking and baking. You can put a spin on anything and create whatever your little heart desires.
I love, love, love scones. Always have, always will. My mom used to make them sometimes for our big breakfast that we would have on Sundays after church. She would make chocolate chip ones that were so, so good and cranberry ones, which she prefered. They add such a fun twist to breakfast. First of all, scones are so easy to make. And they’re so versatile. You can really make any kind of scone you want. Sweet ones, savory ones, plain ones, chocolate ones, any kind of fruit… You can Bubba Gump those scones and make 100 different kinds. You get my point. The sky is the limit. Unless you freeze-dry them for an awesome astronaut breakfast. Now there’s an idea! Get on that NASA, hungry astronauts will thank you.
Here’s a few tips for success when making these scones:
- If your dough is too dry and there’s flour that isn’t incorporating well, add a few drops of milk. But literally just a few drops at a time. The dough will go from too dry to too sticky in a flash.
- If your dough is too sticky add a little bit more flour. Only add a tiny bit at a time so you don’t make it too dry!
- Try not to work the dough too much in order to keep the end result a nice tender scone.
I know my tips make these scones sound like a lot of work but trust me, they’re not! You will know when your dough is too dry or too wet. These scones are phenomenally moist and tender with just the right amount of crumble. I know you’ll enjoy these as much as I do.
