Scone dough is supposed to be a bit sticky and rough....adding too much flour to make it not sticky can result in a heavy scone. Just flour your hands a bit and pat out gently.
Not sure why others have had issues. I chop the berries, then freeze them on wax paper before adding. Perfect every time!
My husband and I love this recipe. The dough was very sticky with all the cream but I just dumped it out on a very floured surface and then sprinkled with more flour before I kneaded and then only kneaded ten times like it stated. I sprinkled more flour on it when it felt too sticky and then once more when I was patting them into the rectangle shape. I agree that half the glaze would have been enough but my husband loved it so much he completely covered his scones. They turned out very light and fluffy for me and I think that is because I didn't over knead. We are definitely making these again.
Very good breakfast treat. Dough does get a little wet after adding strawberries, but just add enough flour to knead together and they come out great. the glaze is fantastic.
These had wonderful flavor, but gave only 4 stars because they were quite sticky and difficult to pat into scone shapes. They had more of a biscuit texture. The icing is scrumptious. Half the icing was plenty to generously drizzle on them! I only had 1/2 cup strawberries as well, so I added 1/2 cup blueberries...yummy!!
