Very Berry Strawberry Scones

With Summer on its way, that means its berry season! Plump strawberries, gorgeous blueberries and don’t forget raspberries and blackberries. If you head to your local farmers market you can find these fresh picked and ready to go. Nothing scream Summer more than fresh berries.

I decided to try my hand at some strawberry scones – I had some gorgeous ripe farmer’s market strawberries that were almost too ripe, so I whipped up a batch of these very berry strawberry scones. They take no time really to make, and pair beautifully with a cup of coffee in the morning or a scoop of ice cream for dessert.

Very Berry Strawberry Scones

I can make these in about 30 minutes – the boys love to help me bake, so this would be a great time to get the kids involved. Try making these with blueberries and lemon, or raspberry and lemon. You can make a drizzle to if you like. Mix together 1 1/2 cups of powder sugar, 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, and 3 Tbsp. milk. Drizzle away! 

These fresh, homemade strawberry scones will be a big hit – they didn’t last long in our home. 

Enjoy!
