A agreeable way to start the day! The strawberries and orange (do not leave out as it is a key component) bring a nice flavor to these not overly sweet scones. Think I would like to try adding just a bit of vanilla and maybe sprinkling a little sugar over the top. Thanks for the wonderful use of fresh strawberries and the post.
