Easy recipe for Fresh Strawberry Scones. Step by step directions with photos that will turn out the perfect scones. The finishing touch is an amazing glaze that adds just the right amount of sweetness!
I got sidetracked for a bit with my bundt cakes, but I’m back in scone mode and today I’m sharing a recipe for fresh strawberry scones. Before I made my Lemon Ginger Scones, I thought scones were complicated and hard to make. I thought something that was so beautiful, and tasted so good, couldn’t possibly be easy.
Well…I’m here to tell you that they are. Super easy in fact. It took me longer to chop the strawberries than it did to mix up these fresh strawberry scones.
Fresh Strawberry Scones Recipe Tips
- Like all scone recipes, the dough will be shaggy. Just knead and roll, and in no time the dough will be ready to cut.
- This fresh strawberry scones recipe is not overly sweet, so don’t skip the glaze. It really is the finishing touch and takes hardly any time at all. I always think of scones as a breakfast food but these are perfect for dessert…or an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee or tea.
- Strawberries are not in season around here yet, but I found some organic strawberries at my grocery store that were amazing. I am definitely making these again though when our homegrown strawberries are available.
- How many scones you get from the recipe depends on the size of your cookie cutter. I used a 3 1/2 inch cutter and got ten scones. If you make smaller scones, you would get more. Another option is to shape the rolled-out dough into more of a circle and then cut it into wedges.

The weather here has been beautiful…finally everything is green and the weeds are growing faster than I can pluck them out of the soil. I always get impatient to start planting, but I know that’s a few weeks away. For now I’m enjoying the newness of all my perennials popping up and the green buds on the trees. I hope the weather is beautiful where you are too…thank you so much for stopping by, and for your friendship.
