My husband and children being British, I've baked scones for years; I'm hard pressed to actually call these "scones"...more like little tea cakes. That said, they are lovely, delightful and simply easy to toss together. I used the tablespoon cookie scoop, so I ended up with the recommended amount AND I added my K.A. Secret Ingredient...3 drops of Fiori di Sicilia. That, plus the strawberries made these "scones" smell like Heaven was at my back door. These are very moist, very soft and cake-like; personally, I enjoy scones with a bit more resistance to them. However, they were gone in 1 hour's time and everyone who tried them enjoyed them. I refused to use the microwave for the glaze so I used my 6" cast iron skillet to make the sugar glaze and glad that I did; it kept the remainder nice and warm so it was still usable for the 2nd batch. I'll certainly make these again but I won't call them scones: they'll be renamed Strawberry and Cream Tea Cakes. And a word of warning: this is a VERY WET DOUGH!!! I would caution against using frozen strawberries or it might turn out too wet to bake well. I'll stick to fresh, firm berries to make this recipe, again.
I had to make these as soon as I saw the recipe! In fact, I KNEW instinctively that I needed to double this recipe...BecR, these are like perfect little strawberry shortcakes in a perfect little package...PERFECT!!! I used heavy cream...made 24 scones in 14 minutes...enough to share with neighbors!
Whichever reviewer said these are like strawberry shortcakes was right on. Like the classic biscuit kind topped with fresh whipped cream. I baked mine too long and they were still amazing. My husband and I ate half of them on a Sunday morning and had to give the rest away so we wouldn't eat them all. I made the strawberry butter from Strawberry Sweetheart Streusel Muffins to spread on them which was the icing on the cake. Am making them again now and will certainly come back to this recipe again and again. Thanks for posting!
I didn't change a thing in the ingredients. And they turned out so good. Even my son likes them. Thanks Bec :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
I followed the recipe exactly, they are delicious!! I used fresh strawberries, picked at a local farm...heavenly!
These scones have a great texture. According to DH it's "truly amazing how much these taste just like eating strawberries and cream" The strawberry flavor really cuts through and provides for a delicious end product. Thanks for a great recipe!
Results are good...but they should be as this is a King Arthur Flour recipe...let's jsut give full credfit where credit is due.
