Double-Strawberry Scones

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl stir together the flour, the 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently toss in fresh and freeze-dried strawberries and basil. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together eggs and the half-and-half. Add egg mixture to flour mixture all at once. Using a large spoon, gently stir just until moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a generously floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it 5 to 7 times, turning dough a quarter turn after each fold. Transfer to a lightly floured parchment-lined baking sheet. Pat or lightly roll dough into a 3/4-inch-thick circle. Cut circle into wedges and pull apart slightly.
  4. Brush wedges with additional half-and-half and sprinkle with sugar. Bake about 16 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Refrigerate any leftover scones; reheat 15 seconds in microwave. Makes 12 scones.

From the Test Kitchen

If desired, pat dough until 3/4 inch thick. Use a sharp knife to cut into squares or use a round cutter to cut dough into circles, rerolling scraps as necessary.

Reheating:

To reheat leftover refrigerated scones, microwave at 50% power for 20 to 25 seconds or until warm.

Wow, not sure why this recipe exists. It is super sticky and bakes up more like a cross between a muffin and bread but looks like a pile of goo. My five year old said it's 'basil soup'. The 'simple scone' recipe from allrecipes is Waaay better and more versatile than this stuff. I had strawberries and thought I would try something new. WIshing I hadn't. These are Not scones. I only put in half the basil but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and the basil is overbearing. Please send me a pint of strawberries so I can make a yummy scone.

I have not tried this recipe yet. I've tried several times to make scones. Each time they turn out to be tough and like a biscuit that has gone wrong. I hope this recipe will work for me.

Yes, the flavour is very similar to biscuits. I think it needs a little bit more of sugar in the dough.

Hi, Shelby. I'm Colleen from the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen staff. Seeing your comment, I went ahead and made these up so I could see what was going on. Actually, they are pretty similar to biscuits, except for the addition of eggs, which is typical for scones. So the dough may seem a little wetter. The kneading on the floured surface should help, and I also found it helped to use floured hands to pat out the circle. They seemed to bake up pretty nicely. Overall, they seemed to work. We hope you can find another scone recipe on our site that you might like better.

This recipe sucked! I followed it to the T and my scones turned into biscuits. The dough was tacky like biscuit dough. I just dont understand why it didnt work.
