Ingredients

  • ¾ stick (6 Tbsp) cold butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar, plus 2 Tbsp for sprinkling
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 lightly beaten eggs
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream, plus 2 Tbsp for brushing
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • Butter
  • Jam

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut cold butter into small pieces and return to refrigerator.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add cold butter; pinch and rub with your fingertips until butter is well distributed (mixture should resemble coarse meal).
  4. Gently stir in eggs and ⅓ cup heavy cream until mixture forms a soft dough. Stir in strawberries.
  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and pat into a 1-inch-thick rectangle (about 10 by 12 inches). Cut into 8 triangular scones.
  6. Brush with 2 Tbsp heavy cream and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp sugar.
  7. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm, with butter and jam.
