If you’re in the mood for pink, you’re in for a treat. Today we’re celebrating a “pink-themed” virtual baby shower for Katherine over at Love in My Oven. And I’m bringing these oh-so-yummy and pink Buttermilk Strawberry Scones with a Lemon Butter Glaze.
While these scones are tasty for baby showers, virtual or otherwise, they’re also perfect for wedding showers, Mother’s Day, spring events, strawberry season… Well, you get the idea.
A simple-to-make scone, that’s flaky and tender, with a perfect blend of sweet and tart. Finished off with a Lemon Butter Glaze that brings all the flavors together.
Afterall, isn’t that what pink-themed baby showers are all about? That perfect blend of tender and sweet? As a mom who only had a blue-themed baby shower, it’s delightfully fun to do pink. Congratulations, Katherine, on the newest addition to your family! Baby girls are just the most precious little people.
Meet our guest of honor: Katherine! Katherine blogs over at Love In My Oven and is the proud momma to two boys and a soon-to-arrive baby girl!!
Have a scone or two, with tea, of course! And be sure to check out what else is happening at the baby shower below the recipe.
Fresh Buttermilk Strawberry Scones with Lemon Butter Glaze
Easy to make, sweet and flaky, these Fresh Buttermilk Strawberry Scones are everything you love about the season. Make a batch and enjoy with a cup of tea!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 12 tablespoons (1-1/2 sticks) cold butter, cubed small
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
Lemon Butter Glaze
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut the cubed 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.)
Fold the strawberries into the dry mixture and coat. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Fold the ingredients until it is just incorporated. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
Transfer the dough to a floured surface and divide into 2 parts. Roll each part into a round shape about 3/4-inch thick. Cut each disc into 6 wedges and place slightly separated on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14-18 minutes, or until the top begins to turn golden brown.
For the glaze: combine the lemon juice, confectioners’ sugar and melted butter in a small bowl. Whisk until the lumps disappear. Once the scones have cooled, drizzle each scone with glaze.
