After a couple of days spent in London it's impossible to not be inspired by all the delicious foods and mixture of cultures and treats. Scones are said to be from the United Kingdom as well, they are often served with jam too, for breakfast, afternoon snack or dessert and we truly adore them too. There's something magical about a big, thick "cookie" texture biscuit - scone, combined with fresh seasonal fruits like strawberries and delicate whipped cream. Not only is this dessert perfect for picnics, summer days and celebrations, it's also awesome because you can bake the scones two days ahead and then simply serve them when it's dessert time. Easy peasy and so so so delicious. Thanks to Mu Cuisine for sponsoring this delicious post.

METHOD
make scones batter
    Preheat your oven to 200 °C / 390 °F. In a large bowl of a food processor sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, pinch of salt and small cubes of cold butter. Pulse until the batter is just combined. There may still be visible parts of butter. Transfer to a large bowl, add cold whipping cream and stir to combine.

TIP

If you are not using a food processor, rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips, until it resembles small flakes.
Scones
    Flour a clean work surface. Transfer the dough to a work surface and gather the dough together to form a rectangle. Fold the dough into thirds, as you would a letter. Form a rectangle. Dip a pastry cutter (8cm (3-inch) in diameter) in flour and cut out 8 circles (about 2 cm (0.8-inch) thick). Make sure not to twist the pastry ring around or there scones won't be as brittle as wanted.
Bake
    Put the scones on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make sure there's enough space between each scone. Brush the top of each scone with a little extra whipping (not whipped) cream. You can optionally sprinkle with sugar. Place in the oven and bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or until golden and risen.
Strawberries and cream
    While the scones are baking, clean your strawberries, cut large ones in half. Place them in a bowl with two tablespoons of sugar, combine and leave to macerate for a few minutes. Whip the whipping cream.
Serve
    Remove baked scones from the oven and leave them to cool for about 15 minutes, then cut them in half lengthwise. Serve with fresh macerated strawberries, whipped cream. Optionally you can also add remaining strawberry liquid from macerating and fresh mint leaves.
