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.

These were tasty. Based on reviews from this and other recipes, I drained the diced strawberries on paper towels to reduce any extra moisture. I also added about 1 1/2 tbsp of white sugar to the dough to give it a bit of sweetness. I cut the dough into 6 wedges, and cooked them in my convection oven at 400. They were done perfectly in 17 minutes. Once they cooled, I topped them with the orange glaze from Oat Scones With Orange Glaze. A nice treat for Sunday morning breakfast!

These were really yummy. The orange rind is definitely the best part. I made them exactly as listed and then drizzled an orange flavored glaze on top. Thanks for sharing this recipe! (These scones are really awesome with chopped, fresh peaches instead of strawberries! I omit the rind and make a glaze with confectioners sugar and pureed peaches.)

I followed the recipe exactly and they came out beautiful and delicious. They were not sweet, so if you want them to be sweeter sprinkle the top with some decorative sugar before you bake them (I am going to try this next time).

These were very good, but I would have liked them to be just a bit sweeter. The dough tasted almost like bread with strawberries thrown in.

I need to fiddle with this one as I'm using frozen strawberries for it. First batch I accidentally added too much milk (just over 1/3c) for how moist the frozen berries made it. Hoping to have time to make it again tomorrow to try another tactic with the frozen berries. Mine turned out a little more cake-like for the extra liquid, but were VERY tasty! Will try to remember to post when I hit upon a good ratio for using frozen.

Very good! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out just as expected. I might play around with a bit of cinnamon next time... Thanks! :)
