For Scones:

  • 3 cups (360 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (66 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks (170 grams) unsalted butter cold and cubed
  • 2 cups (334 grams) strawberries cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk

For Glaze:

  • 1 cup (113 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream or milk


For Scones:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Using clean, dry hands, work the butter into the dry mixture. There should be pea-sized pieces of butter with a few slightly larger chunks. Add the strawberries. Stir to combine.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the vanilla and 1 cup of the buttermilk. Begin to stir and add the last 1/4 cup slowly, you may not need all of it. The mixture should not be too wet.
  • Turn the mixture out onto a clean and floured surface and gather the dough together. Pat the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick. Using a sharp knife, cut the circle into equal-sized triangles and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake the scones for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let the scones cool slightly before glazing.

For Glaze:

  • In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar and vanilla. Add the heavy cream or milk one tablespoon at a time, whisking until free of lumps and a runny consistency.
  • Use a fork or a spoon to drizzle the glaze over the scones.
