Those came out gorgeous, Barb. Very pretty.

I just got done making some sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies. Of of our neighbors passed away last night so I made cookies to take down to her family who is here to support her husband and then the extras I'm passing out to other neighbors in her honor and memory.

I made strawberry scones a few years ago and they were not good. Yours look fabulous. I'm known as the scone queen (Beth can attest to it since I'm always posting scone pics on facebook and LisaSD has eaten them), but these were just not great.

I'd love to see your recipe since it looks so much better than mine did.

Strawberry Almond Scones:

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) very cold butter (or frozen)
3/4 cup sugar
zest of a lemon
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup of sour cream
1 egg
1/2 tsp almond extract
a bunch of strawberries, cut into small chunks
whole milk for brushing the tops
handful of sliced almonds for the tops
  sugar for the tops or 1 cup confectioners sugar w/ a tbsp milk for icing

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a big bowl.

Cut your butter into the mix, and incorporate with your hands (I find it easiest to grate the stick of cold butter w/ a cheese grater, using the big holes). It will be a bit messy.

Add in the rest of the ingredients, adding in the berries last. Again, using wet hands is the best way to make scone batter, though a bit of a mess.

Form a ball of dough and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten it down to a circle.

With a sharp knife, cut into 8 pieces. Brush with some milk and sprinkle w/  sugar (unless you are going to ice them).


400f for 20 minutes
