These Strawberry Shortcake Scones are flaky, tender, and filled with fresh strawberries. If that isn't enough to draw you in, the scones are drizzled with a sweet and creamy glaze.

Ingredients
For Strawberry Scones:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp VERY COLD butter, cut into ¼-inch cubes
  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • ¾ cup half and half cream
For Glaze:
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup half and half cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt; whisk lightly.
  3. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender, two knives, or your hands until mixture resembles pea-sized crumbs.
  4. Add in the strawberries and coat lightly with the flour mixture.
  5. Add half and half to mixture; fold together gently until the mixture just begins to come together and form a soft dough. Try not to over knead the dough.
  6. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the rectangle into 6 squares, then cut the squares diagonally to form 12 triangles.
  7. Place scones on prepared baking sheet and bake 16-18 minutes, or until scones are cooked through and golden brown.
  8. To keep your counter clean, place a sheet of parchment down under a cooling rack. Remove scones from pan to cooling rack. Cool about 15 minutes before glazing.
  9. To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla, and half and half until smooth. If your glaze is too thick, add a little more cream. If it’s too thin, increase the powdered sugar by the ¼ cup or less until the desired consistency is achieved. You want the glaze to be thick yet pourable.
  10. When scones are cooled, drizzle the glaze over them. Glaze will firm up when scones are completely cool.
