Course Dessert
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 21 minutes
Total Time 41 minutes
Servings 8 scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar, granulated (plus a little extra for sprinkling on top before baking)
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom
  • 1 stick butter, unsalted, diced (8Tbsp.)
  • 3 large eggs one egg is for the egg wash
  • 1/2 cup whole milk (or cold heavy cream)
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, full fat
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, fresh, diced (but I always like to add a little extra!)

For the glaze

  • 1 cup powedered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. whole milk

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine on low speed 2 cups flour, 2 Tbsp. sugar, baking powder, cardamom and salt. Blend in the cold diced butter at low speed until butter is in pea-sized pieces (about 30 seconds or so).
  • In a measuring cup, gently whisk 2 of the eggs with vanilla extract, milk (or heavy cream) and yogurt and pour into the flour mixture just until blended.
  • Toss the diced strawberries in 1/2 Tbsp. flour and then fold in the diced strawberries. The dough will be sticky.
  • On a flat surface, sprinkle 1/4 cup flour down so dough doesn't stick. You will want to add some flour to your hands too. Work the dough into a ball and then flatten into a round, making it about 3/4-1 inch thick. Cut the round into 8 wedges to make the scones. Then brush egg wash (egg wash is 1 egg whisked with 1 Tbsp milk or water) over each section, sprinkle with a little sugar. 
  • Carefully transfer scones to the baking sheet. I like to use a spatula to help. Bake for 18-21 minutes, or until tops of scones are browned. Once the scones have cooled you can drizzle on the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and milk together (optional).
