Strawberries ‘n Cream Scones with Vanilla Glaze

Strawberries ‘n Cream Scones with Vanilla Glaze
Who doesn’t love a wedding?
I’ve tried not to buy into six months of media hype… they are such a beautiful couple, full of promise…and royals after all.  I have felt like “OK, so that’s nice,” until this week.  It’s embarrassing, I’m even excited for tomorrow.

I love a great wedding, especially when I’m not hosting it!

So we are ready to celebrate in our king-size bed, with 
Royal Strawberries ‘n Cream Scones 
with Vanilla Glaze
and cups of steamy herbal mint tea!
Tasty and tender, perfect for a Royal Tea Party.  Let’s get mixing!
Combine dry ingredients and add softened butter…
with a pastry blender or fork, mix the butter into the flour well.  Add diced fresh strawberries, gently coat with flour.  Now add the cream, gently mixing by hand with a spatula. If you’ve got time you can refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.  Often I just mix it up and bake it though.  It will be moist and sticky.  Gently knead a few times on a lightly covered surface.  Pat into a 8 to 10″ circle, about 1 inch thick and cut into 12 pieces.  Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of sugar and bake in a 400 degree over for 20 to 25 minutes.  Remove from hot oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.  Drizzle with vanilla glaze and garnish with sliced strawberries.
Serve with a light, minty herbal tea…
 “Keep Calm and Watch the Wedding!”
Best wishes for a lifetime of royal happiness…
I’m happy for Kate…I married a prince of a guy too!

    I have to chuckle Gnee, I was stationed in England for Charles and Di, lived the hype. Haven’t thought twice about tomorrow until today… they do seem so young, sweet and genuinely in love, I’ll be tuning in before 6AM just to see what’s going on:@) Your scones are beautiful and will be perfect for the festivities-enjoy!

    I love the scones you made (and the photos you took of them). I think they will be just the thing to enjoy while watching the wedding. I’ll be watching the beginning part of the wedding (before work) and then will watch the rest in re-runs.

    I won’t be rising early to start watching the wedding but I’m sure there will be lots and lots of recaps. You scones look beautiful and I’m sure Williams and Kate would approve 🙂

    Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous? I love her smile and her eyes. I did a couple of royal posts too, but didn’t know there was a linky party, maybe it is a bit late, but think I will join up.

    I did Ginger scones and mock Devonshire cream, I will have to try these, they look wonderful. Strawberry anything, yum.

    Those look delicious! I was up at 4:oo to watch the wedding but did it sconeless.

    My daughters and niece hosted a bevy of co-eds in the wee hours too. They had scones (purchased) and dreamed together.

    Wasn’t it just beatiful?? I thought the sermon was a perfect charge to the couple. (To all of us!)

    I love scones, and these look fabulous! I was up at 2:35 AM the day of the wedding and took blueberry scones and tea to a friend’s house to watch it with her. Westminster Abbey is such an amazing, historical structure. It was such a privilege to attend the memorial service of the 400th anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth I in the Abbey. (Kinda strange, the memorial of her death, but…) I LOVE the photos of the inside of the abbey during the ceremony. I this this union secures the future of the monarchy, at least for a couple generations.

    I have previously made scones for my family and they were loved by my family so I was excited to try these! I made this recipe and followed it, adding only cinnamon for extra taste. Somehow these did not turn out properly… the dough was very wet and the scones did not rise as they baked. Instead, they spread out over the baking sheet and flattened out. The scones had a very strange texture and looked like cake instead of the crumbly texture I expected… Any suggestions on what I did wrong?
