Indulge summer with this Fresh Strawberry Scone recipe. Incredibly easy to make with fresh strawberries. With no cutting or rolling dough, these scones are perfect for summer with a cup of afternoon tea.


Units Scale
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick) cold butter, diced small
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk or heavy cream
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced small


  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • water to achieve consistency


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line 2 rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork, fingers, or two knives. (Or use a food processor with the metal blade to speed things up. Just a couple of pulses will do.)
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk or heavy cream. Stir until just incorporated; carefully fold in the strawberries. The dough will be very sticky and moist.
  4. Using a large scoop or spoon, place 12 dollops of scone dough on both of the prepared baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 16-18 minutes, with the rack in the center of the oven, or until the top begins to turn golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool while making the glaze.
  6. For the glaze: combine the lemon juice, confectioners’ sugar, and melted butter in a small bowl. Whisk until the lumps disappear. Add water as necessary to achieve desired consistency. Once the scones have cooled, drizzle each scone with the glaze.


If you plan on freezing these scones, don’t worry about adding the glaze.
