    Oh. My. Heavens.

  4. Absolutely love these, especially the strawberry in the center!

  5. Maria says:

    Perfection!

  6. These looks fab! My mom’s not into pink, but I bet I can change her mind with these!

  7. mmmmm.. These are like a super strawberry Mother’s Day surprise!

    I was hoping to catch you in Boston on your book tour, but I see you’re only doing a private event there. So sad (for me, that is).

    • Kelley- it was SO hard to find a venue there- CRAZY!! Where is your business?

  8. LOVE that glaze. I’m in total love!

  9. these are FAR from boring!

  10. Such a creative take on a classic! I’d happy much on these this Sunday.

  11. Lauren says:

    I’m just about to take these scones out of the oven and they look wonderful! Great recipe.

  12. Brilliant…and beautiful. I’ll eat (or drink) nearly anything that’s pink.

  13. We’re in Upstate NY, Heather, about equidistant from NYC and Boston, but Boston is WAY easier to get to by car. Never fear- I’m going to buy a few copies of your book for my sister, etc and have a cookbook party and make some recipes from your book.

  14. These scones sound great and look so pretty too!

  15. Breyonna says:

    These looks AMAZING!! I have a question for you though… What if there is no food processor? Does blender work?

    • No blender! I would do it by hand Breyonna. Maybe use your fingers or a pastry cutter to get the butter in to the flour. In fact you could use frozen butter and grate it with a cheese grater as a good way to get the butter into the flour. Then mix the wet ingredients into that with a spoon.

    These are such pretty pink scones!! I’ll take a dozen please :)

  17. I could definitely go for some of those scones for breakfast!

  18. Heather, these look so darn good… Lucky for me they aren’t in front of me, or I’d be eating them all! ;-)

  19. brandi says:

  20. dying to get my hands on these!

  21. These look absolutely gorgeous and delicious! Can’t wait to try them!

  22. Kaylenep says:

    Wow I have never thought of putting a filling in a scone! These look so nice. Thank you for the great recipe!

  23. Rebecca stanion says:

    This may be a silly question but what do you mean by cream? Heavy cream?

    • heavy cream or whipping cream will work Rebecca!

    I just made these! OMG–WONDERFUL!!! I will use this “base” scone recipe (without strawberries) as my starting point for all scones! It is perfect, both with and without strawberries! Thank you!
