Strawberries are everywhere right now. They are big and sweet and calling my name every time I walk into the grocery store. I have been using them in all sorts of recipes but one of my favorites are these Strawberry & Cream Scones…they really are the perfect breakfast (or afternoon) treat.
Strawberries, Strawberries and more strawberries. As you can see there is strawberry in every bite of these scones. I know some of you may be asking, what if I am not a strawberry fan or what if they don’t look good at the store…don’t worry I got you.
You can use any combo of berries you prefer, just make sure they come out to about cups when chopped. Blackberries or blueberries would be amazing. The next one I am going to try is peaches…how good does that sound?
Whatever fruit you use, make sure and take a pic and tag me so we can all see your creation @sparklesnsprouts.
A little extra something…
Scones used to scare me. I thought they were really complicated and you had to be so careful or they would be rock hard….well I could not have been more wrong. They are some of the easiest pastry like creations I have ever made.
For this scone dough I used heavy cream and [Vanilla Bean Paste|https://amzn.to/2I2sGT2 ] to give it that extra little something. If you do not have the vanilla bean paste you can use vanilla beans, or vanilla extract. I also used course sugar on top of the scones for a little extra crunch.
It’s the little things that made these scones truly something special.
To glaze or not
I am not a fan of a glaze on my scones, but my momma is, and since I share all my baked treats with them I decided to glaze a few scones just for her. To make the glaze extra delicious I used the [Vanilla Bean Paste|https://amzn.to/2I2sGT2 ] and heavy cream but vanilla extract would work as well.
If you are a fan of glaze I would recommend not glazing them until you are ready to serve, as it can make the top of the scone mushy if it sits too long.
It is scone time!
