Fresh Strawberry Scones

This time of year strawberries are in abundance in Florida. We bought a case at the Flea Market. I found a recipe on Allrecipes.com. I changed it up so I took from the recipe and than made it my own. Light on the inside, but crusty on the outside. I made a delicious glaze for them and swirled it on as soon as they came out of the oven. I ate mine with some of the fresh strawberries. These get 5 stars...I hope you will try them.

Cook:

20 Min

Ingredients

1 c
ripe strawberries-cleaned, hulled and diced
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 c
vanilla coffee creamer
2 c
flour
1/3 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp
lime zest
6 Tbsp
cold butter

LIME GLAZE

1/2 c
powdered sugar
juice of a small lime
1/2 tsp
soft butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425F. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray. (I made mine on a stone so no spray was needed.)
2
Place diced strawberries on a paper towel and dry excess juice. In a bowl combine creamer and vanilla. Set aside.
3
Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and lime zest. Cut in cold butter into chunks and add to the flour mixture. Use a pastry blender to cut in butter until mixture resembles course pea-sized balls. Toss strawberries in , and gently toss ingredients. Make a hole in the middle of the flour mixture: pour cream in the middle. Quickly stir dough until just blended. Allow dough to rest 2 minutes.
4
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead for 2 minutes. Note-the dough is really sticky so don't worry, it is supposed to be that way. Drop large spoonfuls on pan. I shaped mine into circles. Bake for 18 minutes. Remove and frost immediately.
5
Glaze: Add all ingredients and drizzle over scones.
