Looking for a great tasting, easy to make strawberry scones recipe? These strawberry scones are delicious. Nothing can compare to a homemade scone.
Those scones remind me of grandma, she often made them when we would come over to hang out at her place. Scones are pretty popular now a days. Starbucks sells blueberry scones, but in my opinion, you cannot compare them to homemade, warm out the oven…yummy
Tips for Making the Perfect Scones:
- Never use bread flour. Bread flour is too strong and will not give a light airy texture to the scones.
- The secret to perfectly soft scones is not to overwork the dough.
- Make sure all of the scones are the same size. This ensures even baking.
- Beaten or whisked eggs work best to coat the top of the scones. Some recipes call for milk, but I find eggs give the best shine.
Variations to Strawberry Scones
- If you wish to make a little healthier version, you can replace 1 cup of white flour with whole wheat flour. And replacing sour cream with plain yogurt.
- Blueberries can be swapped for the strawberries in this recipe.
