Fresh Strawberry Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups or all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup or granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, coarsely grated
  • 2/3 cup 10% cream, plus more if needed
  • 454-g tub strawberries, diced, about 2 2/3 cups, divided
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

Directions

  • PREHEAT oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • STIR flour with 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Using a fork, mix in grated butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cream and half of berries until dough just comes together. Add more cream, 1 tbsp at a time, if needed. Do not over-mix.
  • SCOOP 1/4 cup of mixture for each portion and shape into 1-in.-high round scones. Set on prepared baking sheet.
  • BAKE in centre of oven until tops are golden, 15 to 17 min. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  • COMBINE remaining 1/4 cup sugar and half of berries with zest in a small saucepan and set over medium-high. Cook, stirring often, until sugar is dissolved and berries are soft, about 15 min.  Serve warm with scones.
