This is a basic gourmet scone recipe. In this recipe, I am using strawberries, but you can use a variety of fruit(s) (blueberry, strawberry-rhubarb, currant, raspberry, peach, pumpkin, etc). Also, I tend to use splenda instead of sugar, since I'm splurging in the calorie department with the whipping cream!!! Extra treat: add some chunks of cream cheese to the centre of each scone. Yummy!!!
