Strawberry Topping:
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2-3 Tbsp icing sugar
Scones:
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine
  • 1½ Tbsp sugar

  • ½ tsp salt
Glaze:

Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the sliced strawberries with sugar. Cover and refrigerate. Whip cream with icing sugar, set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar. In another bowl mix remaining dry ingredients, then add into butter mixture alternating with buttermilk.
  3. Drop batter onto a greased baking sheet, form gently into scones shapes.
