What’s a Scone?

I’m from a town that had a restaurant that made the best scones in the world. So I grew to develop a tastes for really good, tasty scones. So, what is a scone? A scone is actually a lot like a biscuit. The only difference is that scones are usually made with eggs and biscuits aren’t. But the result is generally the same for both in that the pastry itself isn’t too sweet.

This is what I like best about scones. They get the sweet or savory flavor from the fillings and toppings that you use with them, not from the pastry themselves. This is great if you don’t want a dessert that is too rich, sweet or overbearing.

Can You Use Frozen Strawberries For This Scone Recipe?

If you absolutely have to, you can probably make it work. But they will most likely release too much liquid as they thaw and you won’t like the result. You’ll want to keep them as frozen as possible while working them into the dough, which will make them hard to cut into small pieces. You could possibly thaw them out so you can cut them, then refreeze them. But, honestly, I’d just make this recipe with fresh strawberries.

How To Store Your Scones

Like with all pastries and baked goods, keeping them in an airtight container is key! A tupperware or zip lock baggie will work. Having a large tupperware container to put all your baked goods is a MUST! And this one is perfect for these scones!

You can keep them in your fridge and they will last a bit longer than keeping them at room temperature. Just a couple seconds in the microwave will do the trick to get these babies fresh again!

You can also freeze these Strawberry Scones. Just let them cool completely and wrap them tightly in aluminum foil, freezer wrap a freezer bag or any combo of these. We love to use these gallon sized freezer bags. They are tough, durable and have new grip and seal technology that makes them super easy to open and close. They will be good in your freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes, Tips and Variations

  • Use Cold Butter!-They main key to get authentic, bakery style scones is to use cold butter. This will get you that crispy, flakey and buttery texture you are looking for. If working the butter in with your hands, be careful as the dough will heat up quickly. The butter should still be in small pieces when ready to go in the oven. Using a pastry blender or a pastry cutter like this one or grating your butter is probably your best bet!
  • Milk-You can substitute any kind of milk if needed. Almond, soy, non-fat, etc. You can also try using half and half or heavy cream for a slightly richer texture.
  • Sticky Dough – The dough will be sticky! You can use some extra flour on your hands to help with this when you are working with it.
  • Small Strawberry Pieces – I like my pieces of strawberries to be pretty small. Having just a few big chunks of strawberries in each scone really isn’t what I’m going for. So make sure you are cutting them small enough so they are scattered evenly inside your scone.
  • Use Turbinado Sugar – While we just used granulated sugar on our topping, you can try using different sugars as well. Sprinkle to top with Turbinado Sugar. It is coarser, darker the scones more texture and flavor. You can also sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
  • Add a Vanilla Glaze – You can make these scones out-of-this-world delicious if you drizzle some Vanilla Glaze over the top. It’s easy to make, just combine 1 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar, 2 tbsp of Milk and 1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract. Pour it over the Strawberry Scones once they have cooled.

These are perfect for just about any occasion: a brunch, a cookout or just a surprise for the kiddos one Saturday morning while they are watching cartoons. I hope you enjoy the warmer Spring weather and let me know how you like this Easy Strawberry Scones recipe!
