Strawberry Scones

Breads/Muffins/Coffee Cake/Scones


1 C. strawberries
2 1/4 C. all-purpose flour, unsifted
3 T. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 T. butter or margarine
2/3 C. milk

Preheat oven to 425F. Hull strawberries, cut into 1/2" pieces (makes about 1 cup); set aside. In large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter. With a pastry blender or two knives used
scissors-fashion, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in reserved strawberries; toss well to coat. Add milk all at once. With a fork, lightly toss together until mixture holds together. With floured hands, scoop approximately 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of mix and drop on a greased cookie sheet. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Serve warm with butter or cream cheese. Yield: 1 dozen.
