These Strawberry Milk Scones are perfectly crumbly, not too sweet, and PINK! Made with Strawberry Nesquik for that nostalgic childhood flavor. They’re easy to make and delicious!
I dreamed up this recipe for Strawberry Milk Scones a couple of weeks ago and I had to test them out. They not only came out perfect, but they have become a family favorite!
- 2 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) very cold salted butter, cut into small chunks
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon strawberry extract, optional
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup Nesquik strawberry milk powder
- 1/4 cup Nesquik strawberry powder
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set to the side.
- In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, kosher salt, and granulate sugar.
- Then add the cold butter chunks into the flour mixture. Pinch the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers until the dough comes together.
- Mix together the heavy cream, eggs, strawberry extract, vanilla extract, and Nesquik strawberry milk powder. Then pour the heavy cream mixture over the flour and butter mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon.
- Transfer the dough onto a heavily floured surface. Form the dough into a ball and then flatten it into an 8-inch circle. Use a sharp knife or bench scraper to cut the dough into 8 wedges. Place each slice onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Place the baking sheet with scone wedges into the fridge or freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes until they are cold to the touch.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- Remove the scones from the fridge or freezer and brush each scone wedge with heavy cream. Then place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until the scones are a light golden brown.
- In a small bowl, sift Nesquik strawberry powder and powdered sugar together to remove any clumps. Set to the side
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the scones to cool completely. Using a fine-mesh sieve dust each scone with the strawberry milk powder and powdered sugar mixture.
