Scones are lovely.

They’re slightly sweeter than biscuits and although scones are ideal to serve for breakfast, they’re also a very special treat to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea.

The trick to making perfect scones every time is to make sure your ingredients are cold.

Don’t take the butter, milk or eggs out of the refrigerator until you are ready to make scones. This ensures the scones will be perfectly flaky.

  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

How To Video


  • Place the chopped strawberries in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar over the top and stir gently. Set bowl aside and let sit while you make the dough.
  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Line a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar.
  • Using a pastry blender or your hands, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and the egg yolk. Pour into flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Gently stir in the white chocolate chips and the chopped strawberries.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead very lightly and form a circle. (Add a little more flour to the dough if the dough becomes too sticky to handle). The circle should be about 5-inches in diameter and 1-inch thickness.
    Cut the scones into 4 triangles and place on a small baking sheet lined with silpat or parchment paper.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool on baking sheet for a minute, then transfer onto wire rack to continue cooling.


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and the cream until smooth. Spoon over each scone.

    So, I tried these last night with strawberries and no white chocolate and no icing. They were awesome. I used heavy whipping cream in place of the milk and had to add a little more (about 2 tablespoons) as the batter was not moist enough to hold together. Will be making them again with peaches next time. The batter is a great basic batter for any fruits.

    1. Hi Lea,

      I’m so happy you enjoyed the scones – it is a good, basic recipe and I love your idea of making them with peaches!!
      Thanks so much for taking the time to write.


  2. Would it be possible to sub a different fruit for the strawberries? I have a bunch of blueberries and wanted to try them. Maybe add a bit more liquid since blueberries are not as moist as strawberries?

  3. 5 stars
    Turned out great, I switched it up by adding cheese, shredded coconut and five spice. I like others have cravings for some endulgance but shy away because
    recipes just make too much for one. These are easy, quick and yummy.
    Thank you and pls keep em coming😋

  4. 5 stars
    These scones were outstanding. I used semisweet chips instead of the white chocolate and half and half instead of the cream and milk-and oh boy are these amazing. Thank you for the recipe. They taste like a chocolate covered strawberry. Yum!

  5. Did you cut the scones and separate them on the baking sheet before baking or did you leave in a circle and score them before baking then cut them apart after coming out of the oven to cool.

  6. 5 stars
    This recipe sounds scrumptious and the scones look absolutely gorgeous, almost too beautiful to eat! 🙂

  7. Oh my goodness these look amazing! I am always looking for treats like this that I can have with my morning coffee. These would be perfect!

  8. I wish I could step into your kitchen right now and sit down and have one with you! These scones look so good!

  9. eat good 4 life

    I have not made scones in forever and this strawberry ones look to die for. The perfect breakfast any day of the week.

  10. This small batch recipe is perfect for days when I have those pesky sweet cravings but don’t want to end up with a huge batch of scones! YUM!

  11. Michelle @ The Complete Savorist

    Joanie, I absolutely love all your small batch desserts. I don’t do a lot of baking on my own website, but my daughter deserves to have homemade goodies. We just don’t eat things quickly enough before they go bad. These recipes are perfect because we get to enjoy a couple of servings of the sweet stuff and they’re gone before they’d go bad…no waste. She will love these so I think we might need to tackle them this weekend.

  12. Ooh, I didn’t know white chop scones existed…this could be dangerous! Will have to give them a try, thanks for sharing 🙂

  13. laura@motherwouldknow

    What a lovely, quick brunch treat for the weekend. I’m always thinking about making scones, but tend not to do it unless we have company. These would be perfect for the 2 of us.

  14. These look so good, honestly your recipes make me hungry every time which is not a bad thing at all. Thank you for this recipe.

  15. 5 stars
    These scones are a must try. I know my family is going to love them unless I decide to eat them all myself.

  16. Wow, so so lovely. I love scones. I hardly bake but this recipe seems really easy to follow and looks like something I would really enjoy.
