Serves 8 scones | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

2 large eggs
1 tablespoon plus 1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting work surface
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
2/3 cup strawberries, hulled and chopped


Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking


sheet with parchment paper. Beat 1 egg with 1 tablespoon cream in small bowl. Set aside. Whisk remaining egg, remaining 1/4 cup cream, buttermilk, and vanilla


together in medium bowl.


Pulse flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in food processor until


blended. Add butter and pulse into flour until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal,


about ten 1-second pulses. Transfer mixture to large bowl and make well in center.


Add buttermilk mixture and stir until batter forms moist clumps. Carefully stir in


strawberries.


Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface and knead gently until dough


comes together and is smooth, about 10 seconds. Pat dough into 7-inch circle about 1 inch thick. Using sharp knife, cut circle into 8 wedges. With pastry brush, remove excess flour from wedges. Transfer wedges to prepared baking sheet, brush tops with egg and cream glaze, and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.


Bake until lightly browned and toothpick inserted in center of scones comes out


with a few crumbs attached, about 15 minutes. Transfer scones to wire rack. Serve


warm or at room temperature. (Cooled scones can be stored in airtight container


for up to 2 days.)

Notes

" Serve with a dollop of clotted cream (and a cup of tea, of course) for an elegant

afternoon snack. For tender scones, avoid over-handling the dough."
