Strawberry Shortcake Scones

I absolutely love scones, they are one of my favorite things to bake. And, I love trying new combinations of ingredients for making scones. A couple of weeks ago I shared these delicious Roasted Grape and Thyme Scones. Today I’m sharing another scone recipe, perfect for spring and summer, these wonderful Strawberry Shortcake Scones.

Strawberry season doesn’t start here in Massachusetts until June, but we are now starting to get some wonderful sweet strawberries from California in the supermarkets. My almost 3-year old girls love strawberries and we’ve been going through several 2 pound containers of strawberries each week. Luckily, I was able to set aside enough strawberries to make these scones, before my girls devoured them all.

Strawberry Shortcake Scones

I came across this recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Scones in last’s month’s issue of Better Homes and Garden (the original recipe for my Roasted Grape and Thyme Scones is also from that issue), and couldn’t wait to make them.

I love strawberry shortcake. It’s such a classic summertime dessert and invokes so many wonderful childhood memories of family barbeques. I thought it would be a delicious in scone format, and it most certainly is.

These Strawberry Shortcake Scones turned out beautifully. The fresh strawberries along with the cream in these tender flaky scones, is definitely reminiscent of strawberry shortcake. The recipe also calls for ricotta in the batter which make the scones extra tender.

A Cute Story

On the subject of fresh berries, I have a cute story to share. Cereal is a favorite breakfast item in our house. When we go food shopping, I often let the kids pick out which cereals they would like (as long as they are low in sugar and don’t contain artificial colors).

Last week, one of my girls picked out a new cereal, and when we got home she couldn’t wait to try it. However, when I poured the cereal into her bowl, she became very upset and started crying. It turns out that there were fresh berries pictured on the box along with cereal. So, she was expecting fresh berries to be in the box along with the cereal. A reasonable expectation for an almost 3 year old, I think.

Luckily, I had some fresh strawberries, which I quickly added to her bowl and happiness was restored. And, now she’s learned that just because something is pictured on the box, doesn’t mean that it will be in the box!

Strawberry Shortcake Scones

These Strawberry Shortcake Scones are delicious for breakfast with a cup of coffee. They are also wonderful as an afternoon snack along with a tall glass of iced tea or lemonade.

These pretty scones would also be a wonderful addition to a special brunch for a bridal shower, Memorial’s Day or any day.

  6. These scones look delicious. My strawberries are blooming in my garden so I can’t wait to give this a try. About the cereal box -I think they should be required to put in the box what’s on the outside.

    Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty

  7. Strawberry scones are perfect for this time of year. I’m with your daughter. !f they put strawberries on the cereal box they should be IN the box! Good save mom, with those fresh berries. I’m glad you had them!
    I’ll take one of these gorgeous scones for breakfast!

  9. Dear Joy, what a delightful recipe. These shortcake scones sound lovely. Perfect for spring. Pinning. xo, Catherine

  10. My husband wants to eat low carb, but your recipes for scones are making it hard for him to do. I just have to try the recipes and then he just has to eat it since I made it.

  11. Oh my strawberry goodness, Im drooling, these look so good. I really think you should share these on WW and Friday Features this week. Keep baking up all your sweet goodies!!

    Have a great week,

  12. These look delicious, I love the addition of ricotta cheese! I love making fruit scones and have developed a tip that works out well- I slightly freeze the fruit after I’ve sliced them, that way they don’t get mushy or squished during the process.

    • Thanks for coming by Emily and for the tip about freezing the cut fruit, I will have to give that a try!

  13. These look amazing! I’m going to have to save this recipe and make them when my mom is here in a couple of weeks. Our strawberry season is almost played out -which is odd to say, but true. In Mississippi, we don’t grow a lot of our own strawberries – much more blueberries here – but we get a ton from Louisiana.

  14. I’m still thinking about your last scone recipe! This one just looks like spring! Beautiful. Can’t wait to try it out.

    • Thanks Kristen! I’m glad you enjoyed the cereal story, little children just warm my heart 😉

    • Thanks Merlinda! Thanks for visiting, I always enjoy joining your link party and seeing your beautiful photos!

  15. Thank you for joining our Oh My Heartsie Girl Wordless Wednesday Link Party, these strawberry shortcake scones look absolutely amazing!! Have a great day, co-host Evija @Fromevijawithlove

  16. Hi there! Visiting from Oh My Heartsie GIrl. This looks so good! I love scones and I love strawberries, so I bet they’re delicious together! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  17. These look delicious! The words strawberry and shortcake get me every time. We are just starting to get ripe berries in our patch, but we don’t get enough to cook with. One or two for me, one or two for my husband and the rest end up in the belly of my two year old. But these would be worth a trip to the store to buy some!

    • Thanks Carlee! I love anything strawberry shortcake too, how nice that you have your own strawberry patch!
