Notes

This is a basic cream scone recipe from the book On Baking. I added the strawberries in honor of my son's birth mom. We had just spent the weekend by the ocean with her and her 16 year old son. Over a bucket of strawberries she and I spoke of motherhood, sacrifices, my 4 year old, and our "different kind of" family.
