Strawberry Scones

Servings 12

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons chilled butter cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 12 small strawberries hulled and diced
  • 3/4 cup half and half

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender (or your hands) until mixture resembles crumbs.┬áToss in strawberries and coat lightly with the flour mixture.
  • Add half and half and fold together gently until the mixture just begins to come together and forms a soft dough. (Do not knead or over mix the dough.)
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface and pat into a 1-inch thick rectangle or circle. (If dough is very sticky, sprinkle with just a hint of flour.)
  • Shaped the dough into a circle. Using a sharp knife, cut into 8 triangles.
  • Place scones on prepared baking sheet and bake 16-18 minutes or until cooked through and golden.
  • Place a sheet of parchment on a work surface, and then place a cooling rack over top of
    parchment. Remove scones from pan to cooling rack. Cool about 10 minutes.
