Strawberry Almond Scones

   As of late, I've been growing quite obsessed with all things strawberry... Specially after buying over four pounds of them at the local market.  After looking through my Pinterest for some creative ideas I came across this recipe I had saved almost a year ago.  I did modify it a bit, but I can assure you these were one of the easiest and most delicious scones I have ever made. 


3 c All-Purpose Flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/3 c Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Almond Extract
1 1/2 c Heavy Cream (+ some more to brush the top of the scones)
1 c Coarsely Chopped Strawberries
Diced Almonds (for topping)
Brown Sugar (For topping)


- Preheat over at 425 degrees F and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set Aside.
- In a medium bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder)
- In a liquid measuring cup add the cream, vanilla and almond extract. Mix well.
- Drizzle the cream mixture into the dry ingredients tossing and stirring as you go.
- Add the strawberries and toss it all together.
- Add 2 more tablespoons of cream if necessary to create a moist and cohesive dough (make sure it is not sticky)
- Gently gather and knead the dough onto a lightly floured surface
- Press the dough out into a 3/4"- thick disk.
- Use a small biscuit cutter
- Brush each circle with the extra heavy cream and sprinkle generously with brown sugar
- Add almonds to as many of them as you wish
- Place one inch apart on the baking sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes (or until golden brown and cooked through)

Serve warm and enjoy!
