Strawberries & Cream Scones

Strawberries and Cream Scones

 

I didn’t try scones for a while because they always looked kind of dry.  They reminded me more of a biscuit.  I was so wrong.  Scones are one of my favorite breakfasts.  They’re so easy to make, and so moist and delicious, plus, everyone is always way more impressed by a scone than a biscuit.  When I was trying to think of a breakfast to make for my sweethearts this year I thought Strawberries & Cream Scones would be perfect!

These scones are full of strawberry flavor and have a little white chocolate mixed in, then topped with an icing made of cream.  White chocolate tastes like cream to me so I thought they were the perfect way to bake that flavor into the scones.  I think they are best just out of the oven but I gave one to my husband when he got home a few hours later and he said they were a hit!!  They are so great and a must make for your sweethearts for Valentine’s Day breakfast.

    These sound great! FYI – scones ARE biscuits. However, if your biscuits are really dry then you haven’t found the right recipe yet.
