Fresh Strawberry & Basil Scones 


These are wonderful scones that we serve in the Inn & on our Homemade Breakfast Basket which is offered to guests staying in our Suites. Now that strawberries are in season & taste so good, they make these doubly good! Basil adds a bright touch that complements the berries! Straw basil scone

2 Tbs. sugar

1 Tbs. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup butter, cut into chunks

Preheat oven to 400. In bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Using pastry blender cut in butter until course crumbs. Gently toss in freeze dried berries & basil & mix lightly. Make a well in center & set aside.


In another bowl, stir together eggs & 1/2 & 1/2. Add this to flour mixture & stir gently until just moistened.
