Last week’s Great British Bake Off Bakealong was crackers. I made them once and I swore I would never make them again. Other than lavash which are easy to make. But the whole cheese cracker thing – no way, no how, never again. Too much work for too little pay off. This week was a little more up my alley, petit fours. I was all up and ready to make the traditional little cake but the hubby wanted mini scones so it was a mini strawberry scones recipe that I came up with for him. He was very happy.

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Mix the flour and sugar in a large bowl
  • Cut the butter into the flour/sugar mixture until it resembles large crumbs
  • Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and stir to combine
  • Add the strawberries and stir to coat
  • Stir in the sour cream and beaten egg just until mixed
  • Put the dough on a lightly floured counter and gently knead for about a minute until it just comes together. The dough will be lumpy and will barely hold together.

How Were the Mini Strawberry Scones?

Seriously good. And you know what? Since they are mini you can eat more of them, right? I am not sure that is really the way it is supposed to work but hey, it’s worth a try. These scones are really tender – as long as you take care to not overwork the dough. It’s easy to be tempted to as it’s a really weird dough. The first time I used this recipe it was for cherry scones. You can also check out the video I made to show how the batter.

You can see the beautiful rise these scones get from the butter and baking powder. The many layers from not overmixing leads to a wonderful texture. The vanilla glaze is a lovely complement to the strawberries in the scone. I am sure I will try this recipe with frozen strawberries in the winter. We did get some put up from the garden this year.
