Strawberry Rhubarb Scones for Spring

If you have been reading my blog for's NO secret that I love scones.
My love affair with scones carries into all the various flavours there could possibly be...the tenderness of the said little sweet biscuits draw me in like super magnet every time.
With spring coming, I wanted to make whip up some scones with seasonal strawberry & rhubarb.

This recipe is not hard and can be ready to go in the oven in 10-15 minutes....very little time for very big reward people!

Strawberry Rhubarb Scones
{makes 16 scones}

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup cold butter
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup diced rhubarb
1/2 cup diced strawberries
1/4 cup turbinado or coarse sugar for tops. optional

{Before we get started on directions, here's a little tip. If you don't want the strawberries to get 'mushed up' in the scone dough, throw them into the freezer for about 30 minutes before adding into the dough}

1. In bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Mix.
2. Cut cold butter into small pieces and add to flour mixture. Using pastry blender or two forks, blend in butter until it resembles course crumbs. 
3. Stir in buttermilk until soft dough forms. Add strawberries & rhubarb.
4. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead gently 7 to 8 times. Divide dough in 2 and form 2 round discs the size of a small bread & butter plate. 
5. Sprinkle each disc with turbinado or coarse sugar.
6. Using sharp knife, cut each disc into 8 wedges.
7. Place wedges on a large cookie sheet and bake at 425 for 12 to 14 minutes or until tops are golden and scones seem firm.
8. Cool and serve. Scones are always taste the best the day they are made.

Enjoy! I love fresh scones. They are so tender and yummy, and great to share with friends.
