It isn’t quite strawberry season here in Central Illinois, but you wouldn’t know that by walking through the produce department at the grocery store. The other day I was greeted by numerous containers of plump, bright red strawberries just begging me to buy them. I won’t go into how many containers I picked up, but let’s just say I won’t be running out of them anytime soon! I love strawberries, not only thrown into baked goodies but sliced with a sprinkle of sugar. Or how about atop some strawberry shortcake? Oh yeah, now we’re talking! The second I picked up those strawberries I thought bask to the Raspberry Lemon Scones I made last summer and I couldn’t wait to try them as a strawberry version. Homemade scones are one of my favorite breakfast pastries to indulge in. If you have always assumed that scones are dry and bland then you have never tried one of my scone recipes. Just whip up a batch of these babies and I swear you will change your mind forever about scones. These moist and tender scones are studded with fresh strawberries and topped off with a drizzling of lemon icing. These scones are best served warm straight out of the oven or warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds.
