Strawberry Scones with Lemon Thyme Glaze

  1. Preheat oven to 360F.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and toss in the strawberries. Pour in the cold cream and stir until just combined, adding just a touch more cream if needed.
  3. Lightly flour your counter and dump the dough onto it. Fold a couple of times, careful not to work the dough very much, and loosely shape into an 8″ circle. Cut into 8 equal slices and place on parchment-paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden on the top.

Lemon-thyme Glaze

  1. Stir 1 Tbsp of lemon juice, thyme and powdered sugar, adding a touch more juice if it is far too thick. Dip the tops of the scones in the glaze and shake off excess before flipping over.
