So I love all the different foods people bring to their blogs. One of my favorite blogs to read is Katie’s from Good Things Catered. I needed to use up some strawberries and never made scones before so I thought I would give it a try. Mine came out a little different because I am sort o

f on the South Beach Diet. So I made some mods to the recipe. They were ok but next time I’m going to make them the regular way.

Juicy Strawberry Scones
from Good Things Catered

2 1/4 – 2 1/2 c. all purpose flour (depends on how ripe your strawberries are) (I used Wheat flour)
1/4 c. granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling ( I used Splenda)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt 1 stick (8 Tbsp) butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1 egg
1/4 c. yogurt 1/4 c. milk

2 tsp orange zest (I didn’t have any so I didn’t use it)
1 c. fresh strawberries, diced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment. In small bowl, combine egg, yogurt, milk, zest, whisk to combine thoroughly and set aside. In large bowl combine flour, sugar, powder, salt, and whisk to combine. Using pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter into flour until all pieces are smaller than pea-sized. -Add strawberries, and toss to coat. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix in lightly with fork until dough just comes together. Turn dough out onto well floured work surface and pat into large ball. Cut dough in half. Shape half of dough into flat disk shape and cut into 8 slices. Place on baking sheet and repeat with other half of dough. Sprinkle tops of scones with sugar and place in the oven. Bake until turn slightly brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool (or eat right away!)
