Strawberry Shortcakes With Cream Scones

Diana Rattray
Sweet cream scones are the perfect base for a delicious strawberry shortcake. Sprinkle the tops of the scones with decorative sugar for a beautiful glaze.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • *Scones*
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (measure about 9 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or half-and-half
  • *Glaze*
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or half-and-half
  • *Topping*
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Preparation:

In a medium bowl, combine the sliced strawberries with 1/4 cup sugar. Cover and refrigerate. Heat oven to 375°. Lightly grease a scone pan or cookie sheet.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; stir to blend. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture is like coarse crumbs. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 egg with vanilla and 1/2 cup cream or milk. Stir into the flour mixture just until combined.

On a floured surface, knead the dough a few times. Pat into the scone pan or pat into a circle and cut into biscuits or triangles.

For glaze, whisk 1 egg with 2 tablespoons of cream or milk.

Place dough triangles in the scone pan or place cut-outs on the baking sheet; brush scones with the glaze mixture. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned. A toothpick inserted into the center of a scone should come out clean. Cool on racks.

Meanwhile, beat the 1 cup of heavy cream until the cream begins to stiffen; beat in powdered sugar until the mixture holds peaks.

Split scones and spoon strawberries over the bottom. Put the top of the scone on the strawberries and top with whipped cream and a few strawberry slices.

My New Strawberry Shortcake Recipe!, Member pjankerman

My family always loved strawberry shortcake but always secretly thought that the salty dry biscuits were the bane of the recipe. (They would have been happy with simply sweetened strawberries and whipped cream.) This one, (tried by my daughter randomly looking for an alternative) completely won us over! It has the biscuit quality (scone) that you need but the sweetness and nicer texture made it so much more delicious. We even found ourselves not depending on the strawberries for the delicious-ness! It was the SCONE! Wonderful recipe!
