Strawberries & Cream Scones ♥



Hello Everyone! I have a question for you... 

Have you been craving scones ever since the royal wedding or is it just me? I love scones and I love making scones! When I made my first batch of scones a few years ago I was so surprised at how easy they were.  I don't know why, but I had always expected them to be more complicated.  Not the case.  And the best part...I rather enjoy having my hands in dough...(again...just me?) 

Since strawberries are at their sweetest now, I want to share with you a recipe for 

strawberries & cream scones.

They are divine ♥ 




Here's how you make them.... 


2 cups flour
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
2/3 cup half & half cream
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh strawberries
1 egg lightly beaten




In a large bowl combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, lemon peel, salt and cinnamon.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream just until moistened.
Knead in strawberries.  (I used a potato masher to gently mash them in). 





Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. 
(*tip- flouring your hands will help the dough from sticking to you*) 

Pat into an 8 inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges (they need not be perfect so don't worry about that : )  and place on a baking sheet - greased or lined with parchment paper.  Brush with egg and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  

Bake at 425 degrees for 9 - 12 minutes.  

They are sweet and cinnamon-eee and strawberry-eee....and I know you will love them.  

Enjoy! 

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you are having a great week! ♥
