Breakfast isn’t just something we eat in the morning. Over here, we love doing breakfast for dinner, too. Is that something that you do in your home? This strawberry and cream scone recipe is perfect for the morning but also anytime during the day when you want a little something sweet.
Homemade scones were one of those recipes I looked at as too difficult to ever attempt. They were just things I ordered when I was at a coffee shop or a bakery. I’m happy to have learned how to do them myself because now when I have scones they are always fresh. Let me show you how to make them.

How To Make A Strawberry and Cream Scone
- Dough. Follow the full recipe below to mix up your scone dough. Make sure to dice your strawberries into small pieces so they mix into the dough.
- Cut. Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it’s about an inch thick. Then slice the dough into 8 even pieces like a pie and place them onto your baking sheet.
- Egg wash. Mix up your egg wash and brush over the top of your pastry.
- Bake. Cook until turn golden brown, about 16-18 minutes.
- Glaze. While your scones cook, mix up your glaze. When they come out of the oven, drizzle the icing on top. Enjoy!
If you want the glaze to be a true white color, use clear vanilla instead of the vanilla that is brown in color.
How To Store Scones
Scones are usually only good for a couple of days. Just store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
Can You Freeze Scones?
To freeze scones you’ll want to freeze the dough prior to baking in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Pull them out and bake frozen.
How To Eat Scones
Did you know there is a very specific way to eat a scone at a tea party? I don’t plan on eating with The Queen anytime soon, but I thought this Scone Etiquette article was fun to read.
