Strawberry Scones

Cooking with Kids



    • 2 cups all-purpose flour (+ a little extra for work surface and hands)
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • ¼ teaspoon
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold (1 stick)
    • 1 large egg
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • Approximately 2 tablespoons of milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup fresh strawberries
    • 2 tablespoons of milk + a little bit of sugar to sprinkle over top of scones


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Dice up 1 cup of strawberries. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, blender or food processor, add 2 cups flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, and mix to combine.
  4. Add the butter, and with a pastry cutter or fork, cut the butter in. You can also use a food processor or blender and cut the butter. Just make sure to cut the butter into about the size of small, pea-sized pieces. Set the bowl aside.
  5. In a small bowl, add the egg, sour cream, vanilla, and whisk to combine until smooth.
  6. Pour wet mixture over dry, and fold until just combined with a spoon or spatula; don't over-mix or scones will be tough. Add up to 2 tablespoons of milk if needed.
  7. Fold in the strawberries.
  8. Sprinkle about 2-4 tablespoons of flour over a clean work surface and lightly coat hands.
  9. Turn dough out onto your work surface and knead it into 9x6-inch rectangle, approximately.
  10. Cut the rectangle in half lengthwise and then into thirds in the opposite direction. Then cut each square in half diagonally, giving you a total of 12 equal triangle scones.
  11. Place the wedges onto the prepared baking sheet spaced at least 2-inches apart. Do not crowd because scones puff and spread while baking.
  12. Using a pastry brush, brush a little bit of milk onto each scone and then sprinkle with a little sugar.
  13. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until scones are very lightly golden and cooked through.
  14. Allow scones to cool on a baking tray for about 5 minutes before removing and transferring to a rack to finish cooling.
  15. If you want the glaze, mix together 1 cup of powdered sugar, ½ teaspoon of vanilla, and about 1 tablespoon of milk. Drizzle over the scones.
