I am fortunate enough to not only live in the citrus belt of Florida, but to also live close to the strawberry fields of Plant City and the Florida Strawberry Festival. I buy several flats a year to make jam and other desserts. While cleaning them a couple of nights ago, all I could think about was making scones out of them. It worked and I had a wonderful late night snack!

How to Make Strawberry Cream Cheese Scones

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter and cream cheese with a fork or pastry cutter. Carefully stir in vanilla extract and strawberries. Stir in buttermilk. Mixture will be somewhat loose and wet.
  • 2Turn out onto a well floured work surface. Sprinkle surface of dough with a generous amount of flour. With well floured hands, pat down dough and shape into a narrow, but long rectangle, approximately 4-5 inches wide. You may have to add more flour around the edges.
  • 3Using a well floured knife or bench scraper, cut dough into wedges. Place dough wedges onto a parchment or silpat lined cookie sheet. Make an egg wash from a beaten egg and half & half. Brush over each wedge and sprinkle with sugar.
  • 4Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden brown, but not totally hard. Do not overcook or your scones will be dry and hard.
