Strawberry Scones-Mmm Mmm Mmm

Scones are of british origin. Scones are widely popular in scotland and ireland. There are sweet and savory versions of it. I feel no guilt in having fresh strawberries as snack so there will be atleast a cup of fresh strawberries in the refrigerator most of the time. Here is a quick recipe with strawberry made and enjoyed on a lazy sunday morning :)



Ingredients:

Sliced strawberries-1 1/4 cup
All purpose flour-3/4 cup
Whole wheat flour-1 cup
Granulated sugar-1/4 cup
Cold butter-1/2 stick
Salt-a pinch
Baking powder-1 1/2 tsp
Buttermilk/Heavy cream-3/4 cup
Vanilla extract-1 tsp

  
Method: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Sprinkle a spoon of sugar on the strawberries and place it aside. Sift together the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add the butter to it, mix it thoroughly until it forms coarse texture. Combine together the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Stir in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, throw in the strawberries.  Place the parchment paper on a sheet pan. Scoop and drop the dough on the sheet pan. It will yield 6 to 8 scones. Sprinkle some sugar on top of it. Bake for about 15 to 17 minutes until all the scones turn brown. Cool it on a wire rack and serve it with milk or a cup of tea if desired.
