Double-Strawberry Scones

Makes: 12 servings
Prep 20 mins Bake 400°F 16 mins
Double-Strawberry Scones
Ingredients
  • 2 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  cup  (1 stick) butter, cut into chunks
  • 3/4  cup  chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/2  cup  freeze-dried strawberries, (optional)
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped basil
  • 2  eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2  cup  half-and-half
  •  Half-and-half or milk
  •  Sugar
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.
