Strawberry Scones


I love scones, but didn't know how to make it or never even thought that it will be so easy to make. When I had a big bunch of strawberries from our recent trip to Costco and we still had a lot left even after just eating like that, I thought of making something with it. Then while looking through recipes, came across this Alton Brown's recipe for scones which I thought will be good to add the strawberries to.

Here goes the recipe for the scones.

You'll need:
--------------
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup cream
1 egg
1 cup strawberries cut into small pieces.

Optional
For topping:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-2 teaspoons milk

Steps:
-------
Heat oven to 375 degrees.

- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well.
- Cut in butter and shortening.


- In a separate bowl, combine cream with beaten egg then add to dry ingredients. Add the fruit and gently fold it in.


- Line the baking sheet with the parchment paper and sprinkle a bit with flour.
- Turn dough out onto the floured baking sheet and round it to a circle about 3/4" thick.
- Using the knife, slice the circle into 8 wedges. Or alternatively you can cut into biscuit shapes.


- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until brown.


The scones are good just as is, but if you want to add some more sweetness, you can mix the sugar with little milk at a time to get to a dropping consistency and sprinkle over the scones.
