Strawberry Scones with Lemon Glaze
·2 cups all-purpose flour
·2 tablespoons sugar
·1 tablespoon baking powder
·1/2 teaspoon salt
·5 tablespoons cold butter
·1-1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream, divided
·1 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries, chopped
·2 cups confectioners’ sugar
·3 tablespoons lemon juice
·1 tablespoon butter, melted
·1 tablespoon 2% milk
• In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1-1/4 cups cream just until moistened. Fold in strawberries. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
• Pat into a 9-in. x 7-in. rectangle. Cut in half horizontally. Cut each half into four rectangles; separate and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with remaining cream.
• Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. For glaze, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice, butter and milk; drizzle over warm scones. Serve warm. Yield: 8 scones.

I made this recipe exactly as above (except for the rolling out the dough and cutting into rectangle shapes; I ran out of time and just formed the rectangles with my hands. Messy, but it worked just fine!) I took these delightful goodies to a playdate where they were all eaten up. A good sign of a great recipe!
