Perfect Strawberry Scones
Hey!! Nice to meet you. I’m Natasha Kravchuk, Blogger/Cooker from Natasha’s Kitchen where I’ve been sharing amazing recipes since ‘09. My motto; if you can read (a well-written, tested, trusted recipe), you can cook! I included step-by-step photos to give you confidence that you’ve got it,… baby you’ve got it!
I knew I found a winner when I tasted these Double Strawberry Scones. They were perfect; billowy, soft, crumbly, studded with a generous amount of fresh strawberries, and topped with a
drizzle downpour of sweet glaze. Pair these with a mug of coffee and you’re set! If you’ve never attempted scones, you have to know they’re easy to make! More good news: once you have a good scone base, you can make all kinds of modifications for either sweet or savory scones.

These are the small changes I made (I love that you can use the base of this recipe and really make it your own).
*I used heavy whipping cream in leu of the half and half because I’m a thrill seeker (in my own mind).
*I also added a full cup of chopped fresh strawberries (teetering on the edge)
*I whipped up a super easy glaze (mixing up 2/3 cup Powdered sugar with about 1 Tbsp Milk) – I’m wild like ‘dat.
Here’s the full photo tutorial for the visual learners:
P.S. I didn’t knead the dough at all, I just pulled it together into a disk. So easy! I made these for my husband and son to enjoy for brunch. My sons eyes lit up as soon as I started adding the glaze (I have a little sugar addict on my hands). My boys gave rave reviews and not a crumb was left behind. I also made a batch for my nieces 3rd birthday party and everyone loved them; especially my niece who was walking around with crumbs on her cheeks.
Why the glaze? I wanted these to whisk you away to that Fabio commercial where he’s playing a violin (or maybe it’s a guitar? actually I’m really not sure if Fabio is musical at all) anyway, you’re standing on a peninsula that’s getting pummeled by the waves below. Of course you’re wearing a billowy floor length tunic (I wanted to say gown, but we have to consider the guys) with your windswept hair swirling around you, pastry in hand, and you’re like “I can’t believe it’s a scone…” I completely just dreamed that up, but it’s good right? These scones take me there. I think I’ve watched Pride and Prejudice way too many times.Do you have a favorite scone?
