Strawberry Scones w/Lemon Icing

Strawberry Scones w/Lemon Icing

These scones are scrumptious. Another recipe I found a couple of years ago, when scrolling through Pinterest looking for things to make with my Poteet strawberries. I love the addition of the tart lemon icing – it pairs so well with the extra sweet strawberries. Just add a cup of coffee and your set. The original recipe is from Baker by Nature.

Strawberry Scones w/Lemon Icing

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 stick butter (cold & cut up)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 rough chopped strawberries
  • Egg wash: 1 egg & 1 TBS heavy cream whisked together
  • Icing: Juice of 1 lemon & 1 cup powdered sugar whisked together
  • Garnish: Lemon zest

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place another sheet of parchment on the counter for prep that you sprinkle with flour.
  2. In a food processor, add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, sugar & zest. Pulse until mixed. Add cut up cold butter & pulse 2-3 times until butter is cut in & the mixture looks coarse. Put mixture in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, mix egg & milk. Add to flour mixture. Fold together with a spatula until everything sticks together.
  4. Add strawberries and fold in. Some strawberries will want to fall out, but just push back in.
  5. Turn out the dough onto the floured surface you prepared on your counter. Dust flour on top and use your hands to form a circle. Gently work the dough until it is about 8 inches in diameter.
  6. Cut the dough circle into 8 wedges. Carefully transfer to your prepared baking sheet lined with parchment.
  7. Brush the scones with your egg wash.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly golden on top.
  9. Let cool for 10 minutes or so.
  10. Ice each scone with lemon glaze and sprinkle lemon zest on top. Serve with butter on the side.

Notes

I found the original recipe on Pinterest at Baker by Nature. I made tweaks for my ease of preparation.

Strawberry Banana Bread

Strawberry Banana Bread

BREAKFAST

I found this recipe a couple of years ago on Pinterest when I was searching for things to make with my annual flat of Poteet strawberries. This bread from Positively Splendid is indeed, splendid. It is moist & delicious. The best thing about this recipe is that it makes 2 loaves of bread – one for me & one for you! Link to the recipe, below.

Strawberry Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (approximate 2 large or 3 small)
  • 1½ cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two loaf pans. I also line my pans with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar, beating well to combine. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the butter/cream cheese mixture, mixing just until combined.
  4. Add the vanilla and mashed bananas, mixing on low speed to incorporate.
  5. Fold in the strawberries just until they are fully incorporated into the batter.
  6. Divide batter between the prepared pans, spreading evenly with a spatula.
  7. Bake for 1 hour, until a cake tester inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean. After 25-30 minutes you may need to cover the pans with a foil shield to prevent the tops from getting too brown.
  8. Once done, cool for at least 15 minutes. Remove from pans and serve.
