Strawberry Sour Cream Scones
Why I Love This Recipe
These scones are a bit healthier than your usual scones, as they don't call for all of the butter. They are more cakey, though, so if you like a crumbly traditional scone, this isn't the recipe for you! They are very flavorful, and to me the reduced fat is way worth the texture change!
