Ingredients

  • 2 ½ C flour
  • ½ C Pioneer® Sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 8 T cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 2/3 C whipping cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C rhubarb, cut into half-inch slices
  • 1 C strawberries, sliced
  • 2 T whipping cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine flour, Pioneer® Sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the cold butter and pulse until butter has been cut into the flour and you have a coarse crumb mixture.
  3. In a small bowl beat together the cream and egg. Add to the flour/butter mixture and pulse until dough comes together but is crumbly.
  4. Dump the dough onto a generously floured surface and gently fold the fruit into the dough with your hands. Using extra flour, pat the dough into a 6 to 7-inch round, about 1 to 2-inches thick. Next using a floured knife, cut round into 6-8 triangles (scones).
  5. Place the scones on the baking sheets and brush the tops of each with the remaining 2 tablespoons of whipping cream.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden around the edges. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes and to firm up before removing from pan.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature with toppings such as butter, jam or honey.

Optional:

  1. Sprinkle tops with Pioneer® Sugar just out of the oven or after cooled, mix a little water with Pioneer® Confectioners Powdered Sugar to drizzle on top!
