Other than the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, there aren’t many things that will wake me up and have me rushing to the kitchen early in the morning. However, the scent of homemade strawberry scones will do just that.
These tender, buttery and wonderfully flaky scones will surely have you happy it’s morning. Scones come together so quickly – in fact, if you can make biscuits, you can certainly make scones.
One bowl and no mixer needed, these strawberry scones bake in under 15 minutes!
This small batch scone recipe makes just 4 buttery and tender scones – the perfect amount if you are cooking for one or two.
Scones are lovely. They’re slightly sweeter than biscuits and although scones are ideal to serve for breakfast, they are 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 them. This ensures the scones will be perfectly flaky.

The scones keep well in the refrigerator but are best eaten in a day or so after baking them.
