Strawberry-Almond Scones
Serves: 16
 
Ingredients
  • 2¼ cups plus 1 tablespoon bread flour, divided
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ½ cup diced fresh strawberries
  • ¾ cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • ¾ cup strawberry yogurt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together 2¼ cups flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in cold butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, combine strawberries and remaining 1 tablespoon flour, tossing to coat. Add strawberries and almonds to flour mixture, stirring gently just until combined. Add yogurt, stirring until a dough begins to form.
  4. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and knead gently several times until a smooth dough forms. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to a ½-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch fluted round cutter, cut 16 scones from dough, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place scones 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Brush egg onto tops of scones.
  5. Bake until scones are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean, approximately 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
