Strawberry Scones

I have been waiting patiently for the harvest of local strawberries. And NOW they are HERE!!! Hurray! For the next 2-3 weeks the local strawberries will be pouring in! That means I can FINALLY try this scone recipe I spotted on LuLu the Baker's blog months and months ago. I was drooling and planning the second I saw her beautiful scone photos!

I have not made scones before so I did not realize you have to add more flour if your berries are really juicy. I had a very sticky mess of dough to deal with. I think the scones came our really good but I think I may need to try it again to adjust the flour to moisture ratio.. a real bummer I know... gosh MORE scones to bake! What will I do with all my trials and mistakes?

But friends why stop at scones? I mean strawberries are so versatile and all the cool kids are baking with them right now... why stop at strawberries for that matter... blueberry scones sound delicious!

I'm glad you finally got to make them! I've been meaning to take the kiddos strawberry picking out at Thistledown, but I just keep putting it off. This lame-o weather we're having doesn't help!!
