What ingredients do I need to make Strawberry Cream Cheese Scones?

  • all-purpose flour
  • sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt – I use always use kosher, but table salt is fine, too.
  • lemon zest – one lemon will be fine, about one teaspoon
  • unsalted butter – make sure it’s CHILLED! You want that butter to be in small pieces in the dough.
    You can also substitute shortening if you’re doing dairy-free.
  • cream cheese – same as the butter – COLD!!
  • diced fresh strawberries – you can use frozen, just make sure you completely thaw them and dry them well with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture before dicing.
  • egg
  • milk – can use a dairy alternative if you’d like to substitute
  • Turbinado or raw sugar for sprinkling before baking

How do I make strawberry scones with cream cheese?

  • Place a piece of parchment onto a baking sheet and preheat your oven to 425°F.
  • Sift the flour BEFORE you measure the 1 ¾ cups called for
    This recipe calls for sifted flour, so what you need to do is measure a little more than 1 ¾ cups of flour into a fine sieve or sifter. Sift that and then measure the 1 ¾ cups to be used in the recipe.
    There WILL be some left over because through sifting, you are aerating the flour and by doing so the volume changes. I use the amount left over plus a little more if needed for my work surface when I cut the scones.
  • After sifting the flour, put the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into the sifter and sift them into a large bowl.
  • Add the lemon zest and toss to coat.
  • Using a pastry blender or two forks, cut the cold butter and cream cheese into the flour mixture. until it forms a coarse meal.
  • Add the egg, strawberries, and milk. Mix together with a fork until it all comes together forming a soft dough.
  • Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and pat the dough down into a circle that measures about a ½-inch in thickness.
  • With a 2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out the scones and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Gather any dough scraps and repeat, being careful not to overwork the dough.
  • Sprinkle each scone with some Turbinado sugar, if desired and bake for 12 minutes. Place them onto a wire rack to cool for a couple of minutes before serving them warm.

If you like raspberries with breakfast then you’ll have to give these Raspberry Cream Cheese Scones a go.
They’re the ones I based these strawberry ones on.

One of our most FAVORITE things to eat with strawberries besides shortcake are these Cheese Blintzes with Strawberry Sauce!
OMG, are they GOOD!!!
Everyone who has tasted them has fallen in love and they’re ALWAYS requested at holiday gatherings.

Give this Strawberry Stuffed Mocha French Toast a go.
You can have your coffee and eat it, too!

If the blintzes might be a little too involved, then you can just make some crepes, fill and top them with some fresh strawberries and a dollop of some fresh whipped cream.
Or some Nutella!!!

Yes, strawberries are super delicious for breakfast, but have you tried them for a meal?
This Strawberry Spinach Salad is my go-to salad during the summer. Everyone LOVES it, and we add grilled chicken to it when we want to make it a full dinner.

Of course, I’ve got PLENTY of strawberry desserts as well!
Take a look at these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Dream Bars, Strawberry Cheesecake Dream Bars, Strawberry Pretzel Pie, Strawberry Poke Cake, Strawberry Rhubarb Galette, Strawberry Buttercream Sugar Cookies, Lattice Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, and Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream.
