Don't those look delightful? Just the sort of treat for Mom's breakfast or brunch on her special day.
Here is what you will need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp sugar
5 Tbsp butter cut into pats
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup cream
1 to 1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
3 - 4 Tbsp powdered sugar
Cut your dough in half, vertically, and then cut each half into thirds, horizontally. Cut each third in half diagonally, to give you triangles. Now gently transfer your scones to a baking sheet. I usually line my baking sheet with parchment paper when I am making scones, but it isn't necessary. Your scones may just be a bit brown on the bottom.
Into the oven the go!
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until slightly colored on top. You don't want to dry them out. If your scone dough was still a bit wet, you may need an additional 5 minutes or so. Just watch them if you need to go over 20 minutes of baking time.
While your scones are baking, take that cup with your strawberry syrup in it and add 3 or 4 Tbsp. of powdered sugar to it.
Mix well to create a delicious glaze. I like to add a small splash of vanilla to my glaze to enhance the flavor.
This glaze is just for drizzling. If you want to completely glaze the tops, you may need to add a bit of milk or water to the glaze to make sure you have enough for all the scones.
Once the scones are out of the oven, let them cool for 10 minutes or so before you drizzle them with your glaze.
YUMMY!!! Perfect for Mother's Day. The beautiful thing about these scones, is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze them before you bake them. This way you can have fresh baked scones any time of the day. Using fresh fruit, means that they won't keep for long, but they are so delicious, they may not last the day. They certainly didn't at our house.
