8 scones


  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 8 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, divided

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1 ½ cup chopped fresh strawberries

  • cup chopped toasted walnuts

  • ¼ cup regular rolled oats

  • 3 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a medium bowl whisk together 2 cups of the flour, the granulated sugar, baking powder, and 3/4 tsp. salt; whisk to combine.

  2. Cut 6 Tbsp. of the butter into small pieces and add to the bowl. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Pour cream into a measuring cup and add egg and lemon zest. Whisk to combine. Add cream mixture to flour mixture; gently stir. Add strawberries and walnuts; stir just until dough comes together (a few dry crumbles are OK). Form dough into a ball and transfer it to prepared baking sheet. Pat dough
    into an 8-inch round.

  4. For streusel: In a small bowl stir
    together the remaining 1/4 cup flour, the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Add the remaining 2 Tbsp. butter and work it into the dry ingredients until it is crumbly.

  5. Spread streusel on top of the dough round; gently pat into dough. Cut round into eight wedges. Using a small spatula, separate the wedges so there is about 1 inch of space between each.

  6. Bake 25 minutes or until tops and streusel are golden brown; let cool. (These scones are best eaten the day they are baked.) Makes 8.


If desired, split or crumble scones and serve with desired-flavor yogurt, whipped cream and additional strawberries.
