Strawberry Cream Scones

What makes SCONES so special?
They’re easy to make, flavor profile combinations are endless, and they just taste so darn good!


The flavor profiles used in this recipe are strawberries and limes. Both ingredients I like and embrace their union totally!



One thing that I’ve learned when working with dough is not to overwork it. This seems like it would be easy to do. I’ve read that the best way to work with dough is to handle it as little as possible.


Dough is ready to be divided.

I used a pizza cutter to cut the scones.


I brushed the scones with egg wash, and then moved them to a baking tray. It was a challenge getting them on the baking tray. Lesson: Don’t do this!
INSTEAD, put the scones on the baking tray. THEN brush with the egg wash.


Just out of the oven. Lime Glaze awaits.

Allow the scones to cool completely before applying the glaze.

Scones! I really love them but I do exactly what you say not to: over work them. I can't help it, but sometimes it always happens!! One of these days I'll get them right.
Your scones look absolutely lovely and mouthwatering good!!!

Strawberry and lime would make for some really nice scones! I like that you can see the lime zest in the glaze!
