THEY WERE SCONES

“Those coulda been guests at her wedding”. “THEY WERE SCONES!!!!!”

Don’t know what I’m referencing? Yikes. Dear LORT please tell me you know this movie. PLEASE?!

Here’s the clip, if you need help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HAWB5wDzSE

Anyway….you ready? Here’s my take/ adaptation of Baker by Nature‘s Strawberry Scones with Lemon Glaze. They’re delicious, and difficult to screw up. These are more of a “Latte Larry” scone, versus a “Mocha Joe” scone (annnnnd another TV reference. Any “Curb Your Enthusiasm” friends out there?). Regardless, they’re more scone-y than muffin-y.

READY? GO.

Ingredients

3/4 cup of strawberries – fresh. Frozen makes it TOO watery
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1 tsp milk
1/2 cup whole milk
2 tbsp lemon juice and zest of 1 lemon

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Put some parchment paper on a metal baking sheet. This way you can not wash it latter. Handle the biz.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder, soda, sugar, and zest. You need to use a flour sifter thingy for optimum results. I use this one https://amzn.to/34QfVb9 (and as an amazon affiliate, I get paid when you buy it. I’ll never post anything that sucks….mkay?)
  3. Cut the butter into small cubes then work it into the mixture (using your fingers) until lit resembles a coarse meal.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk, then add to flour and butter. Stir everything together until just moistened.
  5. Add strawberries into dough. This will be a weird wet mess, but don’t fret my pet. Just go with it.
  6. Flour your surface and form an 8 ish inch disk shape. (That’s a flat circle, duh). Cut the dough into triangles. Original recipe calls for 8 pieces, but I prefer to cut 10 so I feel less fat – I like to eat two scones a sitting.
  7. Brush each scones with the egg wash, then sprinkle the top of each scone with sugar. You can use coarse sugar or refined, I don’t care.
  8. Bake until light golden brown, around 15-20 minutes. Eyeball. it.
  9. While the scones cool, make the glaze.
  10. In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice and confectioners sugar. Drizzle over scones, and stuff your face.
