2cups + 1 tablespoonall-purpose flour
¼teaspooncream of tartar
½cupgranulated white sugar
¾cupcold salted butter, cubed
1 ½cupsfresh strawberries, chopped
1 tablespoonsalted butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 400℉. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and sugar together in a large bowl. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter until the pieces of butter are the size of peas. Stir in the chopped strawberries.
Whisk together the cream, egg, and vanilla in a small bowl and add to the flour/butter mixture. Stir together until the dough just starts to come together. Turn the contents of the bowl onto a clean counter and knead the mixture until the dough just begins to come together. Do not over-mix!
Flatten the dough into a round about ¾ inch thick. Cut into 12 wedges using a pizza cutter or large knife and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 14-16 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Let the scones cool on their baking sheet while you make the glaze. Whisk together the melted butter, powdered sugar, cream, and vanilla extract. Spread the icing over the top of each cooled scone. Enjoy!
