Strawberry Scones make a great spring breakfast or treat. They’ve got delicious, fresh strawberries throughout, and they’re drizzled with strawberry glaze.
I love scones. They’re the perfect recipe if you’re looking for simple but special. Not to mention they are truly delicious.
I’ve shared rhubarb scones with you, as well as peach scones, but today is all about the strawberry. Friends, I am a strawberry freak. I’ve always liked strawberries, but something happened when I was pregnant with my littlest, and I couldn’t get enough strawberries. I would buy the huge package of strawberries from Costco, and I would eat the entire thing myself. It was bad.
Because of my strawberry love, I would have to say that these are my favorite of the scones I’ve made. I’ve also got more delicious strawberry recipes you’ll need to check out if you, like me, are crazy about strawberries.

Tips for Making Delicious Strawberry Scones:
The key to making amazing strawberry scones is cutting the butter in well. Always use cold butter. Cut the butter in until the mixture is fine crumbs. This allows the butter to be distributed evenly throughout the scones, helping the scones to rise more.
Don’t over mix the batter. When adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir together until just combined. Over mixing the batter will cause your scones to become tough.
