Strawberry Scones

If I'm being brutally honest, pregnancy makes me lazy. And that means instead of blogging, I take a nap. A nice long nap in my comfy bed while Sweet P naps the afternoon away (which she tends to do after playing outside on a hot day). So that is where I have been! But I'm back and hoping to have some posts to keep you busy reading for the next few weeks.
And without further ado, I haven't forgotten that I promised a recipe for scones. Gammie made these while she was here so I can't' take credit for this recipe, but they are sooo scrumdiddleeumptious.

The Recipe: Strawberry Scones

What you need:
3 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 c mashed strawberries
3/4 c unsalted butter (chilled and cut into squares)
3/4 c + 1 tbsp milk
1/4 c honey
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix dry ingredients and cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture is crumby. Warm milk for 30 seconds, then add honey and vanilla and combine. Add to dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

Plop dough onto a floured surface and roll out a bit. Fold in half, then fold in half again. Repeat so dough becomes flaky. Form dough into a circle about 1 in thick, then cut into triangles with a pizza cutter. Place scones on a cookie sheet and bake 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.

Serve with regular or honey butter (and try not to eat them all in one sitting!).
