Ingredients:

½ cup strawberries*

3 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons heavy cream

2 cups flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

6 tablespoons butter, softened

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

¾ cup strawberries, diced*

*strawberries can be fresh or frozen

Directions:

  • Preheats oven to 375F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat the ½ cup strawberries and mash them with a fork. Add the sugar and heavy cream and continue to beat until few chunks remain.
  • In a medium-sized bowl combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the butter with a fork; mixture will be crumbly.
  • Once the strawberry mixture has cooled a bit, beat in egg and vanilla. Add this to the flour mixture.
  • Mix in the diced strawberries. If you’re using frozen strawberries, youcan heat them up and mash them before adding them.
  • Place all the dough on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle flour on top and spread the dough out with your fingers until it’s about ¼ to ½ an inch thick. Your dough should now be in the shape of a square or rectangle. With a knife, cut twice in both directions, creating nine squares. Cut each square diagonally, so you end up with 18 triangle scones. You can leave them all connected for a softer treat.
  • Bake in the oven for about 18 to 20 minutes.
