Strawberry Lemonade Scones





Sweet and sour, flaky, buttery scones with a lot of lemon zest, lemon juice and freeze dried strawberries drizzled with a strawberry glaze.


I have no clue why this combination works but it does. It maybe that strawberries cut down on the tartness.
These scones are perfect for this time of the year because it is so hot. Today alone was in the mid 90's and it felt like 100.
The scones will refresh and cool you done on a hot day because it takes just like the liquid form of strawberry lemonade.

Plus this summer I have been watching my niece and nephews and they love anything that I've made with strawberries or lemon or both.

That is why these should be a kids favorite and they have a freeze dried strawberry, like an astronauts would eat.

  8. These look delicious! And also easy to make some tweaks to, depending on dietary choices. For me, personally, I would do whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, ghee instead of butter, and almond milk. I'm definitely going to try these and let you know how they come out :)
