Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 8 scones


  • 2 cups strawberries hulled and chopped
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter cold
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs

  • Add the strawberries, coating them well in the flour mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract, egg, and milk.
  • Pour the wet ingredient mixture into the large bowl with the flour mixture, mixing gently using a spatula until it is completely combined. Do not overmix the dough.
  • Using floured hands, shape the dough into an 8-inch circle on the baking sheet and cut into 8 triangular pieces. Make sure to separate the pieces on the baking sheet, so that they have room to expand and won’t stick to one another.
  • Bake the scones for 30-40 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • While the scones are baking, mix the powdered sugar and milk to make the glaze.
  • Remove scones from the oven, let cool, and then drizzle with glaze. Optional: serve with strawberry honey butter.
