Making Strawberry Scones From Scratch
If you have never made scones, fear not, they are easy to make. No need to buy them from the bakery. Once you have a basic scone recipe, you can make it in lots of different ways from sweet to savoury.
Here is the rundown, complete instructions are in the recipe card.
- Preheat the oven.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This really is the best way to make sure the scones do not stick.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Combine the wet ingredients in a bowl.
- Add the cold butter to the flour mixture and work in.
- Add the wet ingredients.
- Toss in the berries.
- Place dough on a floured surface.
- Form into a circle and cut into wedges.
- Bake, allow to cool and drizzle with white chocolate.
Butter – make sure it is COLD. Use a fork or fingers to work and rub the butter into the flour until you get pea-sized pieces.
Greek Yogurt – I used vanilla flavoured, but feel free to use plain or even strawberry flavoured yogurt. You can also use sour cream.
Strawberry Oil – adds a little extra flavour punch. If you don’t have any that is fine, vanilla extract is a great alternative.
Avoid overmixing – this is important since overworking the dough will result in tough scones. The dough should be on the sticky, wet side.
Frozen Strawberries – be sure not to completely thaw the berries, you want them to be cold when incorporating them into the dough. You can replace these with fresh strawberries.
White Chocolate – I like to use good quality white chocolate. You can also use milk or dark chocolate, or just drizzle with an icing sugar glaze. These scones are also delicious on their own.
Storing– place in a sealed container and they will remain fresh for 2-3 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. Be sure to wrap them well and place in a freezer bag.
The perfect scone has a crunchy outside and a moist, soft inside.
You need to have enough moisture in the dough, or the scones will fall apart after baking. This is why you should not overwork the dough. The butter needs to have some solid pieces to create air pockets.
They should be about 1 inch thick to create lots of flaky layers during baking.
