Fresh strawberries make these strawberry scones extra delicious! These scones are perfect for breakfast, brunch or teatime and  are perfect by themselves or with a bit of jam.

I think we finally turned a corner….in the weather that is. After weeks of snow and piles of snow still on the ground, we have had a week full of rain and temperatures in the 40s! Around the edges of the snow are signs of spring.

I’ve even seen some bulbs starting to pop up! I’m celebrating spring with these strawberry scones!

Scones are perfect for breakfast or a mid-morning snack with tea! I have to be honest though….these never make it past breakfast in my house.

They are gone as soon as they come out of the oven. Maybe if I made them later in the day, they’d last past breakfast!

What ingredients do I need to make scones?

  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Baking Powder
  • Butter
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Heavy Cream

Do I have to use heavy cream?

No, you do not have to use heavy cream. You can use half and half instead. 

How to make scones

  • Combine flour, sugar and baking powder
  • Add butter and mix in with a pastry blender or your fingers until mixture resembles small peas
  • Add fresh strawberries
  • Add heavy cream
  • Knead together a few times, just until dough comes together
  • Form into a circle
  • Slice into wedges
  • Place wedges on a lined baking sheet
  • Brush with cream 
  • Sprinkle with sugar
  • Bake

Do I need to grease my baking sheet when baking scones?

I have just started baking on a silicone baking mat and I love it! If you don’t have a silicone baking mat, don’t worry! I have used parchment paper for baking scones for years. If you don’t have either, you will want to grease your baking sheet lightly or the scones will stick.

How long do I cook scones?

I cook scones in a 425 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

I hope you are enjoying spring weather and fresh strawberries right now!

Actually, I think we’re in the 40’s here today, but I hear that another big chill is coming our way…but no snow this time at least. Phew! I love scones, and I love strawberries…so these are perfect!

    As much as I love scones, I don’t have much luck cooking them. They taste fine but they turn out with really weird shapes. This recipe looks good though. Nice photos. Makes me hungry!

      If they taste great, don’t worry about the shapes!
