Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 1 c
    chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2-1/2 c
    plus 1 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp
    sugar
  • 1 Tbsp
    baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt
  • 6 Tbsp
    butter
  • 1
    egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 c
    whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 c
    whipping cream

How to Make STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE SCONES

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl toss together strawberries and the 1 Tbsp. flour, set aside. In a large bowl combine 2-1/2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Using a pastry blender cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl combine egg, ricotta and whipping cream. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; add strawberries. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by gently folding and pressing it for 10 to 12 strokes or until dough is nearly smooth. Pat dough into a 10x4" rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise and in sixths crosswise to make 12 rectangles.
  5. Place rectangles 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush rectangles with additional whipping cream. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake 15 to 18 minutes in a preheated 400ยบ oven, or until golden brown. Remove scones from baking sheet. Serve warm.
