Fresh Strawberry Scones


This is the perfect spring time brunch recipe.  Quick and easy, these scones highlight fresh, sweet berries....


Ingredients:

2-1/2 Cups flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 Cup sliced fresh strawberries
2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 Cup + 2 Tablespoons heavy cream 
Turbinado sugar
Whole fresh berries for garnish

To prepare: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry cutter to incorporate butter.  Gently fold in strawberries. Whisk eggs and 1/2 Cup heavy cream to combine and then mix into batter until just moistened.

Transfer dough to a parchment-covered baking sheet. Pat in a 3/4-inch thick circle.  Score into 8 wedges.  Brush wedges with the 2 Tablespoons heavy cream and sprinkle with turbindao sugar.

Bake for 18 minutes or until golden.  Plate and garnish with whole berries.  Serve with honey butter or strawberry jam.
