Easy Strawberry Scones Recipe

Easy Strawberry Scones Recipe

after bringing home a flat of delicious California strawberries from the California Strawberries Event i attended a couple weeks ago, i have been so excited to try out some new strawberry recipes. so when i saw my friend Seir (from We Say Hola) post a picture of strawberry scones on instagram…i had to have the recipe. luckily, Seir sent the recipe right over, telling me it was a recipe from her communities Strawberry Festival. i couldn’t wait to make it…as i have never made any kind of scones before.

the next day, my littlest and i made the strawberry scones recipe. who knew scones were so easy to make…or at least this recipe was pretty simple. little Vann and i had the best time making them.

first, we measured out the ingredients.


 then my little helper had a great time pouring in all the ingredients.


after all the ingredients were put in the bowl, we cleaned our hands and went to town mixing them all together until they formed a nice dough.


then on a floured surface, we pressed the dough into a 3/4″ flat round.


after the dough was evened out and ready to cut, we cut it like a pie, into wedges…using flour if the knife got sticky. and then we placed each wedge onto a baking sheet (somehow i lost the photos of these steps). then we put them into the preheated oven to bake until they were golden brown.

once cooled, we drizzled powdered sugar glaze over the top to make them sweet and perfect to eat. i was really excited to see how much my boys loved these. they ate the whole batch that afternoon. below, i am sharing the complete recipe on how to make this strawberry scone recipe. i recommend making these, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we did. thanks Seir for the great recipe.

Easy Strawberry Scone Recipe

Fresh Strawberry Scones

1 cup fresh strawberries (or other fruit), chopped
4 tablespoons sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, in cubes, slightly softened
2/3 cup cream or buttermilk
1 extra tablespoon sugar to top

Preheat oven to 400˚F.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment.

Cut fruit into small pieces. If using fresh fruit, toss with 1/2 tablespoon sugar and set aside to macerate. Combine remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add butter and combine using a pastry cutter, two knives, or clean hands, until very well combined. Add fruit and cream or buttermilk, and stir until it all holds together and all of the dry ingredients are just combined. For traditional triangular scones: Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times to get everything sticking together. Sprinkle with extra flour if it gets too sticky. Form into a circle about 3/4″ thick. Cut into wedges with a knife and transfer to cookie sheet. For little round scones: Scoop 1/4 cup size mounds onto the cookie sheet with an ice cream scoop.

Bake scones for 15 minutes. Sprinkle tops of scones with reserved sugar and bake and additional 5-10 minutes until tops are golden brown and spring back when you touch them.

makes about 10-12 scones.

For the glaze: mix 1 cup of powdered sugar with a tablespoon of milk. add more milk, if it needs to be thinned out. drizzle over the scones. i like to put the glaze in a ziploc baggie and cut of the corner to easily allow the scones to be iced.





  1. I will be making these when my nephews and nieces visit my home for the holidays. I’m sure they will love it! Thank you so much for the recipe!

    Made these this am. I didn’t have fresh strawberries I used thawed frozen I added little organic sugar. Drained the extra juice kids drank it. These turned out beautifully

  4. I see that the recipe calls from cream or buttermilk. I’m having the darnedest time finding buttermilk so I want to try & make them with cream instead. What kind of cream can you use?

    I have done a LOT of baking and cooking in my time, but for some reason, I have never made scones! These look awesome and sound delicious! I will be trying them soon. Your little helper is adorable! I’m sure you always have plenty of help ?. Thank you for this recipe! I think I’m going to explore your recipes now ?!

    I was so excited to try these and followed the recipe to a T. But it was too liquid like and I couldn’t knead it once I poured it out onto floured surface, so it kept sticking to my hands. Talk about frustrating!! I kept adding a little flour and it would not thicken at all. I have double and triple checked the recipe and I definitely put the 2 cups of the flour like you said but in the picture it looks like you used 1 qurt. So I added two more cups and now it has WAY too much flour! I’m so upset and frustrated about this. HELP.

    • Sorry that the recipe is not working well for you. Your strawberries must be extra juicy. Maybe next time pat them dry before adding them. The dough is a little sticky, but not that sticky. I alway flour my hands and the rolling pin well.

        Thanks for responding! 🙂 Next time I will dry my strawberries. Whenever I get around to making them again they will turn out better…this time was awful, haha. They were hard and chewy! But it’s because I had way too much flour. I thought in the picture you used 4 cups and I figured that’s where I messed up by using only 2 so I added 2 more and it was too much. I did flour my hands well and the surface…and kept adding flour to the dough that I was trying to knead…but it just kept sticking to my hands so bad! Thanks for the advice! 😉

    Made these today, used half wheat flour, very sticky even after cutting back the buttermilk and had to add more flour, it was very sticky.

  8. I just shared this recipe on my “Weekly Round-up” series of top recipe finds! This week was all about strawberries, so I knew this was a must add. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe with us!
