Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup frozen unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup heavy cream plus more for tops of scones
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries diced

Orange Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. If making regular scones, line a large baking pan with a silpat baking mat or parchment paper. If using mini scone pan, lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles small pebbles. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk vanilla extract, egg, heavy cream, and orange zest.
  • Make a well in center of the dough mixture and pour in cream mixture. Using a spoon or your hands, gently mix until just combined. Lightly toss in strawberries.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. If making regular sized scones, shape dough into a large ball, cut into wedges, and place onto baking pan. If using mini scone pan, break dough into chunks and fill scone mold.
  • Brush tops of scones with extra cream, if desired. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • Whiles scones are cooling, prepare the glaze.In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, powdered sugar, and cream. Whisk until it reaches desired consistency, adding more sugar/cream if needed. Drizzle over tops of cooled scones.
