Strawberry Scones

My husband went crazy over these sweet buttermilk biscuits with fresh strawberries.  I’m going to have to make these again real soon.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 3/4 cup whole buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a 12-inch cast-iron skillet with baking spray with flour.

In the work bowl of a food processor, combine first six ingredients, pulsing to combine.  Add butter, and process just until mixture is crumbly.  Pour mixture into a medium bowl.  Add strawberries and buttermilk, stirring to combine (do not over mix).

On a lightly floured surface, shape dough to a 7-inch circle, 2 inches thick.  Using a knife, cut dough into eight triangles.  Arrange in prepared skillet, spacing slightly apart.  Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

Bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
