Strawberry Poppy Seed Scones

Strawberry Poppy Seed Scones with Fresh Lemon Glaze

Strawberries are my absolute favorite fruit.  However, I don’t usually bake with them.  Sure I will make strawberry pie but the fruit is never cooked.  I had picked up several pints of strawberries and some strawberry yogurt so I thought I might as well try some scones.  Really, I should have doubled the batch.  One of my kids was complaining that he only got to eat three of them.  At the last minute I decided to add poppy seeds for a little crunch. For some reason it seems wrong to have poppy seeds without lemon so I threw a lemon glaze together and brushed over the tops after it was baked.  These are sweet enough to be dessert but perfect for breakfast.  I could eat scones any time of day.  I’m thinking I will be making these again soon, maybe right now!  I am loving them and I think you will too.

Strawberry Poppy Seed Scones with Fresh Lemon Glaze


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons poppy seeds

3 tablespoons melted butter

6 oz strawberry Greek yogurt

1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup strawberries, rinsed, capped and diced

for glaze:

1/4 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and poppy seeds.  In a separate medium size bowl, add butter, yogurt, and sour cream mixing until smooth.  Fold in strawberries.  Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix just until combined.  Pour mixture onto a lightly floured surface and form into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut with a sharp knife into 8 wedges.

Carefully transfer to a lined or greased baking sheet keeping the wedges in a circle shape.  Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until scones are lightly browned and cooked through. Remove from oven.

In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Brush over baked scones. Serve warm or at room temperature.
