Ingredients

Instructions

  • First, zest the lemon. Reserve juice to make a glaze with if desired.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar and lemon zest until the sugar turns yellow and fragrant.
  • Add flour, salt and baking powder to the sugar mixture and mix to combine.
  • Add the strawberries to the flour mixture and toss to distribute evenly.
  • In a measuring cup, add the egg and enough heavy cream to fill 1 cup. Add vanilla extract and beat to combine.
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the liquid mixture.
  • Fold with a spatula or wooden spoon until a wet dough forms.
  • Turn the dough out onto a well-floured board, flour top of the dough and your hands, and pat the dough out about 1/2” thick. Fold the dough over itself and pat it out again, do this about 4 times.
  • Shape the dough into a rectangle and roll it out to about 5”x8” or 6”x9”.
  • Use a pizza cutter to cut the rectangle in half lengthwise, then cut in three crosswise to make 6 squares. Cut each square diagonally to make 12 triangles.
  • Place the scones on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, brush the top and sides with the egg white, and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake for 17 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  • If you'd like to make a glaze, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice with 1 cup of powdered sugar and drizzle over the top of the scones.

Notes

  • You can add an addition tablespoon of heavy cream should the dough need a little more moisture.
