These soft and buttery Strawberry Sour Cream Scones are perfect for afternoon tea. The sour cream gives the scones a slight tang and a cake-like texture.
Scones conjure up images of an idyllic afternoon sipping tea and savoring tiny morsels of food with dainty china and lace tablecloth. No afternoon tea will be complete without scones. These lightly sweetened treats are best eaten warm with butter, clotted cream, and jam. Flavored scones can stand on their own with just a little butter, if desired. They are usually flaky and tender but some are more cake-like in texture.
Scones with Cake-like Texture
Today’s Strawberry Sour Cream Scones are more cake-like in texture but still quite delicious. They are soft and buttery with a slight tang from the sour cream. I came across this recipe in one of my cookbooks, Tea-Time at the Inn by Gail Greco. This is an interesting scone recipe that is egg free and uses sour cream. I was eager to give it a try but decided to use strawberries instead of blueberries as they are in season right now. It was one of those buy one-get-one-free kind of deal that I could not pass up.
