Strawberry Sour Cream Scones

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 20 mins

Soft, almost cake-like strawberry scones with a touch of lemon cream cheese frosting. My husband says these are the best scones he has ever eaten! I found a recipe online, but modified it to the ingedients I had on hand and thought might taste the best.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine and mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in bowl.
  3. Use a pastry blender or fork to cut cold butter into flour mixture until well combined and it looks like coarse crumbs.
  4. Gently mix in sour cream (or yogurt, flavored or plain) and chopped strawberries until combined.
  5. Knead slightly on work surface if needed.
  6. Divide dough in half and shape into two balls. Flatten ball and cut into four sections making triangles.
  7. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake 18-22 minutes until scones are brown and don't give too much when touched.
  9. Let cool on wire rack.
  10. While cooling, cream together softened butter, cream cheese, and confectioners sugar. Add lemon juice to make a soft but still firm frosting.
  11. Use the corner of a zip top bag to make a pastry bag, cutting off a very tiny piece of the corner to "pipe" frosting onto cooled scones.
  12. Enjoy!

I believe my BF will definetly agree with your husband! These were fun and easy to make! I used strawberry yogurt with it and everyone loved them. And for a touch of fun I used red food coloring in the frosting. They are so pretty. Thanks for a keeper! I can't wait to try it with Rasberrys.
