Delicious flaky scones filled with fresh strawberries and topped with a creamy glaze.
What you’ll need:
For the scones:
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
3 Tbsp sugar
6 Tbsp salted butter, cubed
10-12 small strawberries, diced
3/4 cup half & half
For the glaze:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup half & half
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 425 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter to flour with a pastry blender until mixture is small crumbs. Add strawberries and gently toss into mixture until strawberries are evenly coated. Fold in half & half until all mixture comes together. Flatten dough into a 1-inch think rectangle on a floured surface. Cut flattened dough into six squares. Cut each square into two triangles. Place cut scones onto baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden. Remove scones from baking sheet and place on cooling rack with sheet of parchment underneath.
In a small bowl mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and half & half until smooth. Consistency should be a perfect drizzle. Use whisk or spoon to drizzle glaze on scones. Enjoy!
Cool, crisp and healthy salads are the perfect snack, starter or complete meal. When you get a salad right it is a colorful meal full of flavor, texture and nutrients. Follow these five steps to make every salad taste amazing!
Step 1: Choose a base- Decide what kind of salad you are going to make and then figure out the perfect leafy green. Remember the darker the green the greater it is in nutritional value. Some great options: Romaine, arugula, butterhead lettuce, red leaf, green leaf, spinach, cress, cabbage, collard green, etc.
Step 2: Add produce- This is where you add color, texture and flavor to your salad. The more color you add to your salad the more variety of nutrients you get. Put at least two types of produce into your salad for a total of 2 cups produce. Some great produce options: bell peppers, brocolli, carrots, cucumber, green beans, radishes, corn, tomato, cauliflower, beets, onions, mushrooms, etc.
Step 3: Make it filling with protein- A salad turns into a meal when you add protein. Choose lean sources of protein to keep your salad good and healthy. Some great protein options: black beans, chicken, ham, turkey, eggs, salmon, lentils, kidney beans, tuna, garbanzo beans, edamame, tofu, peas, pork,etc.
Step 4: Boost with flavor- Make your salad spectacular with salad toppings that add crunch and flavor. You don’t need much to boost your salad. Some great flavor boosters: bacon bits, chia seeds, cranberries, olives, raisins, salsa, almonds, blue cheese, feta cheese,etc.
Step 5: Dress it up- No salad is complete with dressing. Pick a salad dressing that will compliment the flavors. You don’t want to drown out your salad–you don’t need more than 2 tablespoons of dressing. Try out low calorie options or try a recipe to make your own.
