I used heavy cream in the scones as well as for the glaze. I added some honey for an extra bit of sweetness and rolled oats, because I love rolled oats.
I really love the taste of honey in these Strawberries and Cream Scones. It blends well with the heavy cream and the strawberries. These scones are still wonderfully light and fluffy.
They are perfect alone, or paired up with a glass of milk, a mug of coffee, or a cup of tea. I sent some to school with my daughter's lunch, because she really loved them. I think you should make some to start off your holiday weekend right also.
