  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar plus 1 tsp for topping
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 (half stick) cup frozen butter
  • 3/4 cups 1% light buttermilk (cold)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.

  2. Mix strawberries with 1 tbsp of sugar and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.

  4. Using the large holes of a cheese grater, grate the frozen butter into the flour. Mix well with flour.

  5. In a medium bowl, mix the buttermilk, vanilla.

  6. Using a fork, slowly stir in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, until all the mixture is moistened. Do not over work the dough. Fold in the strawberries.

  7. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat, or parchment paper. Drop 8 equal large spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet (to avoid tough scones, do not press or compact). Bake in the center rack 18 minutes. Remove and let them cool about 5 minutes before eating.
