It's no secret if you've been here for awhile that I LOVE to cook. I'm inspired by fellow food bloggers, favorite cookbooks and old family recipes. I love playing around with the recipes and adjust and tweek them based on what I have on hand...... and what I know my family will actually eat. And these are, hands down, the most perfect strawberry scones you'll ever bake!
When it comes to baking, I definitely follow a recipe more than when I'm making a savory dish. There's so much science involved in baking that I usually only make minor changes. I might add chocolate chips, or substitute a different fruit, or use sour cream instead of yogurt.
When I saw Cosette from Cosette's Kitchen make her scones (click HERE for link) and substitute strawberries, I immediately looked in my fridge to make sure my kids hadn't eaten the rest of the strawberries.
I was in luck!
(most likely because the strawberries were stashed in the back of the fridge!)
So I made these, and then they promptly disappeared. But not before I had one with my morning coffee.
They're the perfect kind of flakey, and the bits of sweet strawberry turn jammy and extra sweet. And the sprinkling of turbinado sugar on top is absolutely, positively a must.
When my daughter came home for Spring break I asked what she wanted for breakfast. And, without hesitation, she requested these most perfect strawberry scones.
I can't wait to for you to make these! These would also be incredible with raspberries, blueberries or pears! Go have fun with the recipe and don't forget to leave a comment and let me know how they turn out!
