Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Scones
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
After reading the posts I think you all were too generous. The only positive thing I can say is I didn’t choke on them. I will not be making again!
I made these and they are delicious! though we didn't have fresh strawberries so I thawed some frozen mixed berries and they were still tasty. The batter was a bit sticky but it's baking obviously, you're going to get messy!
Made these for the second time but at high elevation. They turned out great. Works much better adding strawberries to dry ingredients. People that had a gooey dough may have been over generous with the 1/2c strawberries like I was the first time. I brushed on half and half, not egg. Drizzled with lemon glaze right out of the oven - using the half lemon I zested for the recipe for the glaze, adding enough powdered sugar for drizzle consistency.
My man loves when I make these for him! But I did do a couple small changes, first I do not always have a whole lemon, it is good with the zest, but I always have vanilla extract so I just use a teaspoon of that, and then I use a half cup of sugar instead of a third cause it give it that just right amount of sweetness without that feeling of not enough or just to much. Hope this helps anyone thinking of trying these, totally worth a try! =]
Worst recipe I ever tried. This isn't a dough, it's a goo.
On the spur of the moment I wanted to make scones for a post Thanksgiving breakfast. I didn't have the half and half, but I improvised with 2/3 cup of egg nog. It turned out amazing.
These are very tasty, but they are super sticky once you put in the strawberries. I think next time I will take the advice of another reviewer and add the strawberries to the dry mixture then add the cream.
Most scones are pretty bland to me, but these are smooth with a touch of sweet. They are very sticky once you add the strawberries. I ate them warmed with a little strawberry jam. They freeze well.
These were just OK, not much flavor and really missed the mark on the texture of a good scone.
These tasted great but I had a little trouble getting the strawberries kneaded in without the dough becoming sticky. I think it might be better to add the berries to the dry ingredients after you cut the butter in. Then add the cream and gently knead five times. I think that's what I will try next time I make them.
