Strawberry Scones

I wanna give a shout out to Mrs H. of Heritage Schoolhouse for this delicious recipe. I'm having a "high noon tea party" with my girlfriends on Mother's day, and this was a perfect dish.

I suggest making 2 batches...they go that quickly ;)

STRAWBERRY SCONES


2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 cup butter, cubed
2/3 cups half and half
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
2 teaspoons sugar


Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest.  Cut in butter.  Add half and half and mix until just combined.  
 
Gently stir in strawberries.  
 
Pat dough in to a flattened circle.  Cut into 8 wedges.  Separate wedges and sprinkle each with sugar.  
 
Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until done.  Serve warm and enjoy!

Hi Carolyn,
I'm responding to your comment at homeroad via your blog because your settings are set to NO REPLY and I couldn't reply to you. Anyway... I have never used the spray paint, only the regular paint but I've heard it works great too!
Have a good day!
