Fresh Strawberry Scones

Updated On: Feb 13, 2024

The easiest recipe for Fresh Strawberry Scones ever! And the best part of this recipe is you can add all types of fruit or make them savory with bacon or cheese.

Tis the season for fresh strawberries by the bushels-full.  It’s been unseasonably rainy in the Pacific Northwest this spring and summer and my garden has been bursting with giant strawberries.  I can’t keep up with how fast they are ripening.  It’s a fantastic conundrum to have and I am definitely not complaining in the least bit.  I think the best part of picking strawberries is hearing the snap of the berry as it releases from the stem into your hand followed by burst of sweetness as you bite into it.  There’s nothing better than fresh from the garden flavors whether from strawberries or whatever you’re growing.  As a gardener it’s the one thing you long for the entire winter.

This is my tried-and-true recipe for scones.  I’ve been making them this way for what seems like eons.  It’s the easiest recipe as everything goes in the food processor, then gets dumped out onto a floured board, gathered together and cut into wedges and they are off to the oven.  It’s really that easy.  I have modified this recipe more times than I can count and even though the sweet versions are my favorite, it makes an amazing savory scone too.  Add a little bacon, corn meal & cheddar for the best chili dipper ever.

Give these scones a shot – if strawberries are all finished in your area, try swapping them for raspberries or blueberries.

  1. I just made these tonight with fresh Michigan cherries. I used Monk Fruit sweetener & was thinking it was like Truvia but I should have doubled it. Other than needing to be a tad more sweet, they are great! And so easy to make! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I would like to use sugar ( can you please post the amount to use?)

    1. FarmgirlGourmet Author says:

      Anytime I list Truvia just double for regular sugar or brown sugar. Let me know how you like them. 🙂

  3. Ted Shatz says:

    Yes, please answer this for me as well: what is/are the difference(s) between Truvia Blend and Sugar?

    1. FarmgirlGourmet Author says:

      Truvia Baking Blend contains 25% white cane sugar and 75% Truvia which is made from the stevia leaf. It’s a natural sweetener just like sugar and is not chemical laden like other sugar substitutes on the market. Hope that helps.

  4. Oops. You already answered that question. Sorry to bother you.

  5. If I want to use sugar, how can I substitute for the Truvia?
