I cannot get through a summer without having scones and cream with fresh strawberries – I CANNOT!!! It reminds me of warm, lazy afternoons in my Mom’s garden, where she grew all her own fruit. Of course not that I don’t eat animal products, my scones & cream have had to be slightly tweaked, but they’re just as good as the cow butter version. Actually, many prefer my vegan scones with strawberries and coconut cream because they don’t feel bad after eating them.
Makes 12 small scones
3 cups of ancient grain flour (you can use all-purpose but I love these ancient grains) + more for dusting
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup vegan buttery sticks (like Earth Balance), chilled and cubed
4 tbsp of fine sugar (or to be sugar-free, use Erythritol)
