Strawberry perfection!!  These scones will make your whole house smell delicious.  And get this, they're eggless!!   Try this recipe next time you're craving home-baked goodness.  Or next time you have a bunch of berries to get rid of before they go bad. :)


Time: 1 hour


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped (I froze mine overnight for easier handling)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter (8 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (unsweetened)


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
  3. Cut the cold butter into small dices, add it to the flour mixture.  Then use your hands to incorporate the butter into the flour.  It will look grainy.  
  4. Add the small pieces of frozen strawberries to the mixture.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk the sour cream and applesauce until smooth.  Add this to your medium bowl, and stir until a large dough form. (Use your hands to form it into a ball.)
  6. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and shape it into a 7- to 8-inch circle (about 3/4-inch thick). 
  7. Use a sharp knife to cut the scones into small triangles (or desired shape) and place them on a cookie sheet (spray with PAM first).
  8. Sprinkle the scones with 1/2 teaspoon white sugar if you like (I did!)
  9. Bake on 400 degrees until golden, about 15 minutes.
  10. Let cool for 3-5 minutes and enjoy!
