STRAWBERRIES & CREAM SCONES


Primary category: Breads

Ingredients

1/2 c strawberries (cut into 1/4 inch pieces)
2 c cake flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp salt
4 TB unsalted butter
1 TB orange zest
1 c heavy cream

Procedure

Preheat oven to 400°. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into small cubes and blend with a pastry blender until it resembles oatmeal (or small peas, if you don't like oatmeal). Add the orange zest and strawberries. Then slowly and gradually add the cream while mixing with a fork.

As soon as the flour starts to come together into a dough, remove from the bowl and form into a ball. Place on a lightly floured surface and knead gently four or five times. Then shape with your hands (or a rolling pin) into an 8x10" rectangle. Cut the rectangle lengthwise into two 4x10" rectangles. Cut each of those into 6 or 7 triangles and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm with softened butter, jam, creme fraiche or just as they are!
