  • Summary

    I think it's obvious that I love strawberries after how many strawberry recipes I've posted so far. Strawberry season is one of my favorite time of the year as these fruits are simply incredible, so flavorful and can be used in so many delicious combinations.   This recipe for strawberry scones is very easy, takes only 10 to 15 minutes to prepare and you end up having a memorable breakfast. These scones are best served warm just after taking them out of the oven. The sprinkled sugar on top creates a crispy crust while the interior is soft and filled with strawberries. It's really hard to resist. For these strawberry scones I've used buttermilk instead of heavy cream. I didn't want to add more fat as they already have butter. I must say they turned absolutely great, really buttery and soft inside, not too sweet, with a great crispy top, simply perfect.
