Strawberry Chia Scones
Serves: 8
 
Recipe inspired by Averie Cooks' The Best Glazed Mixed Berry Scones.
Ingredients
Scones
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries (can be frozen)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 and ¼ cups all purpose flour divided
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
Vanilla Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chop strawberries into small chunks and measure 1 cup. Spread out onto a plate and freeze while continuing.
  2. Whisk together sour cream, chia seeds, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together in a large mixing bowl 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into pieces into the dry ingredient bow. Using a pastry blender, fingers, or a couple knives, break down the butter in the flour until it forms tiny bits. Add the sour cream/chia seed/vanilla mixture to the dry and combine gently. Add strawberries from freezer and again combine gently.
  4. Measure out ¼ cup flour and sprinkle half over a clean surface. Lay out dough and sprinkle the other half of the flour on top. Form a thick round and cut into 8 slices. Gently transfer slices to parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 18 minutes or until golden. Once baked, transfer to cooling rack.
  5. While the scones are baking grab a medium mixing bowl to make the vanilla whipped cream. Whisk heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together until it almost makes stiff peaks. When the scones are cool, plate and spoon the whipped cream on top.
