OMG. I am so tired. today is short and sweet, (just like my little girls!) that ok? thanks for the boring pass! Luckily the scones at hand are not boring at all. They happen to be short and sweet (literally) and also glorious.
On that note, lets talk Mothers Day Breakfast.
What are you making? Triple Coconut Cinnamon Rolls or Caramelized Banana Sticky Buns? Coconut, Banana or Blueberry Scones? Snickerdoodle Muffins or Berrylicious Smoothies? Maybe French Toast with Raspberry Sauce, Peanut Butter and Jelly Donuts or Frittata? (more breakfast ideas HERE)
Not sure yet? Maybe it is Strawberry Cream Scones…
They are rather wonderful and full of spring flavors and pink to boot. If I were your mother. I would love them. (for other things I would love, look HERE!)
To make these Strawberry Cream Scones, this is what you do:
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Pulse in the cold butter until crumbly. In a separate bowl, combine the egg and cream. Pulse in the cream mixture until you have a smooth, wet dough.
Transfer to a floured surface and lightly form into a disc.
Cut the disc into wedges or cut out circles with a cookie cutter.
Gently slice each scone through the center with a floured knife.
Put a few slice of the sliced strawberry in the center.
Replace the top on the scone and lightly pinch the sides closed.
Brush the tablespoon of cream on the tops of the scones.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.
Take the scones out of the oven and set them aside to cool slightly while you make the strawberry glaze. In a small bowl whisk together the strawberry, powdered sugar and cream until you have a smooth glaze.
Pour 1 tablespoon of glaze over the top of each scone. Let set up and serve warm.

Perfect for mothers day! So pretty and anything involving strawberry is delicious!
Heather, these are amazing! Beautiful recipe and gorgeous photos!
Thank you so much!! 2 layers of strawberry!
Oh. My. Heavens.
Absolutely love these, especially the strawberry in the center!
These looks fab! My mom’s not into pink, but I bet I can change her mind with these!
Yeah Amanda! They are so delicious!!
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?
LOVE that glaze. I’m in total love!
these are FAR from boring!
Such a creative take on a classic! I’d happy much on these this Sunday.
I’m just about to take these scones out of the oven and they look wonderful! Great recipe.
thank you Lauren!! I hope you like them!
Brilliant…and beautiful. I’ll eat (or drink) nearly anything that’s pink.
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.
These scones sound great and look so pretty too!
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 🙂
I could definitely go for some of those scones for breakfast!
Heather, these look so darn good… Lucky for me they aren’t in front of me, or I’d be eating them all! 😉
these are beautiful! that glaze – i want it on everything.
haha! Me too Brandi! Thank you 🙂
dying to get my hands on these!
These look absolutely gorgeous and delicious! Can’t wait to try them!
Wow I have never thought of putting a filling in a scone! These look so nice. Thank you for the great recipe!
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!
yay georgie!! thank you!!
Wonderful foods here. Love it. Pinned it.
mm this sounds really good! I’ve been matching bacon with fruit things lately and this might just be might next duo!
Oh my… YUM! I’m totally making these 🙂
Hi Heather! what kind of flour and butter do you use for this? all purpose or bread and unsalted or salted? Thanks!
Hi amy- All-purpose and unsalted butter!
Looks amazing. Can’t wait to make these. Does the recipe make 6 scones? I see it yields 6 but wasn’t sure if the serving size is 1 or 2 scones.
How is everyone else able to do the glaze? I have 2 cups and one table spoon and have a lump! Are these the right measurements? How are you able to pour it?
I’ve added about another 1/4 c of cream and it’s still a big clump.
