Strawberry Scones Recipe

I loooove scones, don’t you? For me, there’s nothing better when paired with a nice hot cup of tea. Scones and hot tea are like a match made in heaven. Have you ever had a real “tea time” experience with your children or a close group of friends? There’s nothing like it! That’s where I was first introduced and I fell in absolute LOVE! Immediately came home with a ready-to-bake can of scones dough, baked it up, and realized how it wasn’t the same. There truly is nothing like a fresh made scones from scratch, like this Strawberry Scones recipe.

When making this recipe, plan in advance to sugar (or “macerate”) the strawberries to get them perfectly juicy. You can do this overnight, even! Strawberries are often macerated simply by sprinkling them with sugar, because doing so draws the liquid out of the berries, creating a syrup. This syrup is then added with the sliced strawberries to the scone batter, and it tastes amazing! Sugaring strawberries has been a favorite in our household, and it makes all the difference in this delicious scones recipe! By giving yourself time to sugar the strawberries in advance, you’ll get them optimally juicy, making this recipe even more incredible!

From Scratch Strawberry Scones

For this recipe, we brushed egg on top of the scones and sprinkled granulated sugar before baking, giving it a gorgeous crystalline surface that I love! However, if you’d like, you can easily make a glaze to drizzle over top that would be equally as delicious! I would suggest making it as directed at first to taste the true flavor before experimenting with drizzle. For me, these are perfect as is but my kids sure do love making icing and drizzling it on pretty much everything, LOL 🙂

Strawberry Scones Ingredients

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or reusable silicone baking mat) and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Ready all your ingredients needed to make these Strawberry Scones.

Ingredients to Make Strawberry Scones

In a small bowl, pour granulated sugar over strawberries and mix until completely coated. As you’re doing this, do your best NOT to sing “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard (because I do this EVERY FREAKING TIME, OMG). Set your strawberries aside to get all nice and juicy.

Pour Sugar over Strawberries for Strawberry Scones

In a medium-sized bowl, sift together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and salt. Add sliced butter pieces into the bowl of dry ingredients. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until they are well-combined.

Once dough starts to form well where everything is mixed together, pour onto a clean working surface. Knead the dough until smooth and then place it onto your lined baking sheet, forming it into a circle (about 8 inches in diameter). Use a good quality serrated knife to cut the dough into eighths, just like pie pieces. Separate each dough piece on the baking sheet.
