Strawberry Cream Cheese Scones Recipe

All things considered, it’s nearly that season once more.

The season where all my cash goes to the charming Girl Scouts selling treats outside of each and every store.

Their promoting procedure is virtuoso, isn’t that so? They make bomb treats that they just sell temporarily and utilize charming children to blame request that you purchase a case.

It’s that constrained time thing that gets me without fail. Like, on the off chance that I don’t get the third box of Thin Mints at this moment, in half a month, when the treat deals are done, am I going to think twice about it? (Umm… likely).

These homemade strawberry cream cheese scones are filled with fresh strawberries and topped with a vanilla glaze.

Ingredients

  • Strawberry Cream Cheese Scones
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  • 1 Tbsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and cold

  • 4 oz cream cheese, cubed and cold

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (plus more for brushing)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2/3 cup strawberries, finely chopped

  • Vanilla Glaze
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 2-3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
  • Once combined, cut in the butter and cream cheese with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Whisk together heavy whipping cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  • Add in strawberries, and mix until just combined.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and sprinkle more flour on top, if needed (if the dough is too wet–the strawberries can release a lot of juice). Form the dough into a circle, about 1/4-1/2″ thick, and cut into 8 even triangles.
  • Place scones on baking sheet, and lightly brush the tops of each scone with heavy whipping cream.
  • Bake for 15-16 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Vanilla Glaze
  • While the scones are cooling, whisk together powdered sugar (starting with 1 cup), heavy whipping cream (beginning with 2 Tbsp), and vanilla extract. If the glaze seems too thin, add in the last 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. If it seems too thick, add in the last Tbsp of heavy cream.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the scones, and allow to set (about 5-10 minutes).
  • Enjoy!
