Strawberry Scones

We are knee-deep in strawberry season here and, honestly, it’s one of my favorite food seasons! We’ve already been picking twice, and I’ve put up a batch of jam and a batch of pie filling. We’ve been eating strawberries every day – and I’ve been trying some new strawberry goodies.

Eight strawberry scones drizzled with  icing arranged in a circle on a white plate. The plate is sitting on a pink napkin and a container of strawberries is off to the side.

These strawberry scones are an adaption of my favorite savory scone recipe. They’re not too sweet, and absolutely perfect with a cup of tea. And, they’re my kick off recipe for this year’s #BrunchWeek!

Eight strawberry scones drizzled with  icing arranged in a circle on a white plate. The plate is sitting on a pink napkin. A red, ripe strawberry sits on top of the scones.

Ingredients

For the strawberries:

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar

For the scones:

  • 2 and 1/2 cups + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

For the egg wash:

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon water

For the icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a few teaspoons milk

I love almond extract and think it adds such a nice depth of flavor to these scones! Sliced almonds on top would also be a fabulous addition.

If almond isn’t your thing, you can use vanilla extract instead – or skip the extract altogether!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment.
  2. Toss the strawberries with 1 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 1/2 cups flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Cut in the butter until it forms a course meal.
  4. In a smaller bowl, combine the egg, sour cream, and almond extract. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in the strawberries.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and work it into a round loaf shape. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut like a pie into 8 wedges.
  6. Carefully transfer the wedges to the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Beat together the egg and and water to make the egg wash. Brush over the scones.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
  9. To make the icing, Whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and enough milk to make the icing thin enough to drizzle.
  10. Let the scones cool slightly, then drizzle with icing.

We served these warm from the oven and they were so, so good! The scones themselves aren’t overly sweet – but then you get a bite with the sugar-coated strawberries and the balance is perfect!
