Our Summer Strawberry Scones are a delicious and easy recipe for a quick breakfast choice!
I love strawberries! I love everything about them. Their bright, red color is cheery, their flavor is unparalleled and those exquisite little berries promise you'll be happier just for eating one!
These scones are also perfect for snacking or bringing along for a beach day or road trip!
Want to make a strawberry shortcake? These Strawberry Scones will make a perfect companion to some fresh strawberries and toppings!
(Here's another scone we absolutely love when we're in the mood for chocolate!)
When I was a kid we used to go strawberry picking. My mother would take my two brothers and me up on the back hill behind my grandmother's house.
We'd have our containers-I don't remember us having actual buckets, maybe Tupperware?- and search the meadow for the small, wild, delectable strawberries!
It was really hard to not just sit there and eat them like the little girl from Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey!
Such a fun book! Here are some more fun picture books that are perfect for summer!
But, we were a disciplined berry-picking crew! We would proudly walk down that hill with enough berries for plenty of jars of strawberry jam!
The jam was the goal! There was nothing like strawberry jam made from fresh, wild strawberries.
Now for those of you who didn't even realize there are wild strawberries, those were the only kinds I knew about as young kid!
They are smaller, intensely flavorful and taste like summer!
Well here we are, years later and this morning I made some strawberry scones! Two of my fave things rolled into one!
I wasn't planning on posting a recipe today, but they turned out to be scrumptious! Even my husband, who's not the biggest fan of breakfast baked goods, ate three in one sitting and suggested that I make more!
A little note about my scone-making technique- I always scoop them!
I do enjoy the look of the triangular / traditional looking scones, but I don't have the patience to roll & cut!
And I just love the organic look of scooped scones! They get these delicious, craggy edges when baked that make them perfect for everything!
These strawberry scones make for a perfect breakfast at home or on the go, a quick snack or served as a base for strawberry shortcake! Yum!
These do the job and do it very well!

Scrumptious Summer Strawberry Scones!
These Strawberry Scones are quick to put together and are scooped to make for an even easier version of a classic favorite!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 17 minutes
Servings: 12 or 9 larger scones
Food disher/ice cream scoop like these
Liquid measuring cup with pouring spout (or medium bowl if you don't have one)
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup melted butter or oil of choice
1/2 cup milk of choice (I've read you can easily get away with water if someone left an empty milk carton in the fridge!!) - See note below for another tasty option!
optional: 1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of frozen strawberries cut up into pieces
1 Tablespoon of flour
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line baking pan with parchment paper.
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients together in a liquid measuring cup.
Lightly toss the cut berries with the 1 tablespoon of flour to coat them.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together by hand just until incorporated .
Gently fold in the berries until evenly mixed in.
Drop by 1/4 cup scoopfuls on the baking sheet. A food disher/scoop is great for this!
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 17 minutes.
Check at 15 minutes in case your oven runs a little hot. The scones may take as long as 20 minutes if you've scooped them to be the larger size (9 servings).
Your Strawberry Scones are done when they have some golden browned craggy edges and you can see light golden brown peeking around the base of the scone.
They will also have the look of a baked cookie and shouldn't appear wet on top.
I always mix my baked goods by hand- it gives you just the right texture for your baked good!
I use frozen strawberries in my scones. If I'm making blueberry scones, I use frozen blueberries as well. This is to make sure that they don't get all mushy while adding into the dough. You can use fresh strawberries, just be extra gentle when folding them into the mix.
For a fantastic plain milk substitute, consider using one one of those pre-made smoothies in the refridgerator section of the market. They not only make for a terrific substitute, but they can also bump the flavor up a notch as well! We tried this Strawberry Scone recipe with Bolthouse Farms Strawberry Parfait Breakfast Smoothie in place of the non-dairy milk we used the first time and it was divine!!
