Strawberry Oatmeal Scones

 Strawberry Oatmeal Scones with a vanilla lime glaze

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 T unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.

Whisk together the egg and buttermilk and set aside. Combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Add the cold butter pieces and cut in with a pastry blender or your hands, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in the buttermilk mixture and stir with a stiff wooden spoon until just incorporated. Gently mix in the chopped strawberries. The mixture will be very sticky.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly flour surface and gently knead 8-10 times and press the dough into a disk about 1 1/2 inches thick. Portion the dough into about 12 wedges or balls and transfer to the baking sheet. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool about 10 minutes before serving.
 These were absolutely fantastic.Our kids loved them too and gobbled them right up. I made a glaze to go on top for just a little something extra.

  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar, Sifted
  • ½ cups Whole Milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp lime zest
Combine all ingredients and mix till nice and smooth.Drizzle on completely chilled scones or dip the scones in the glaze.
