Strawberry Scones

This is the original recipe that my orange scones is based off of. But I had never made the original. I know, I'm weird like that. I like to tweak. About a month ago I thought I should try the strawberry version. It's good to have some variety. And now, I think I like these better than the orange. Don't get me wrong, if you placed a strawberry scone and an orange scone in front of me and I had to choose which one.....I'd eat both!

Strawberry Scones

1 egg
1/4 c cream
1/4 c buttermilk
1 t vanilla
2 c flour
1/3 c brown sugar
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
6 T butter
2/3 c strawberries, hulled and chopped

Combine wet ingredients into a 1 cup measuring cup- egg, cream, buttermilk, and vanilla.
Top off with cream or buttermilk or milk till you reach 1 cup.
Set aside.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl - flour, sugar, baking powder, salt.
Cut in butter.
(You can put these both in the fridge at this point if you are wanting to make these ahead of time.)
Pour the wet into the dry and stir just until all is moist.
Carefully fold in strawberries.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out 12 scones and place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Top with glaze made from 3/4 c powdered sugar, 1 smashed strawberry and 1-2T milk or cream.
