For the scones

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar or Vanilla-Cardamom Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter diced
  • ½ to ¾ cup half & half
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh strawberries

For the glaze

  • 2 tablespoons Rhubarb Syrup
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon half & half or heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 425-degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; whisk to combine.
  • Using a pastry cutter work the butter into the flour until it’s the size of small peas and distributed throughout the dry ingredients.
  • Add ½ cup of half and half and strawberries mix gently with clean hands, being careful not to over mix; add additional tablespoons of half & half if needed until dough just comes together.
  • Turn dough out on a floured surface and roll gently into a large rectangle. Using a sharp knife or pizza wheel, cut into squares then triangles.
  • Transfer pieces to a baking sheet and brush with remaining half & half.
  • Bake for 7 to 10 minutes until they just begin to turn golden on the bottom.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While scones are cooling, prepare the glaze. Whisk rhubarb syrup, sugar and half and half until smooth.
  • Drizzle over cooled scones and allow 15 minutes to set before serving.
