DIY Strawberry Scones

One of the interesting things about living in this part of southern China, is that our strawberry season is in the winter. In the summer it rains a lot, but in the winter it is usually quite dry and sunny. So now is the time to make all things strawberry here.

These strawberry scones turned really good. I had to quick freeze a few for Valentine's Day or they would have all disappeared the first day. The strawberry icing really brings out the strawberry flavor.

To make the rest of the recipe really easy first wash and hull strawberries and puree enough in a blender to equal 1 cup of strawberry puree to divide for the recipe. If you puree too much you can always make smoothies. :)

Homemade Strawberry Scones

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup strawberry puree
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
  2. Divide dough in two, and press or roll out into circles (or a giant rectangle on a 9x13 pan) on greased pans until about 1/2 inch thick. (Here are more pictures of making scones.)
  3. Score into about 16-18 total triangle-shaped scones.
  4. Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes until just lightly brown.
  5. Remove from oven, and let cool.
  6. Make strawberry powdered sugar glaze.

Homemade Strawberry Powdered Sugar Glaze

  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar (approximately)
  • 1/4 cup strawberry puree (approximately)
  1. Mix together strawberry puree and powdered sugar. To get desired consistency it may be necessary to adjust the amounts of wet or dry ingredients. If the icing is too dry and you don't have any more strawberry puree, you can add a little milk a teaspoon at a time also.
  2. Drizzle on top of scones.
Makes 16-18 scones.
