Chocolate is the food most of us associate with Valentine’s Day and the fruit that is mostly associated with the holiday is strawberries. With both marscapone and heavy cream, these rich scones are another great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a non-chocolate way. I would not be disappointed in the least if I did not eat one piece of chocolate on Valentine’s Day. Instead, I would much prefer to wake up to these luxurious Strawberry Cream Scones, with the heady aroma of cardamom.

These scones are much softer, more tender and delicate than traditional scones. But that’s the point – to have illusions of luxury even if it’s just in a scone! Since they are so soft, it is important to let them cool completely before removing them from the pan.

Don’t forget the curd!

The classic accompaniments to scones are clotted cream, marmalade or jam and curd. Curd is super easy to make and nowadays there are many varietal flavors you make, in addition to the classic lemon curd.

  1. Strawberry with cardamom flavor,i wanna try this to feel the aroma..Scone looks absolutely delicious.Instead of using the mould, i can use any baking dish right?

  2. Wow mascarpone and heavy cream in scones — that sounds decadent and delicious. With strawberries these scones are just perfect for Valentine’s day.

  3. I’ve always wondered if cream would make scones a bit heavy but since you mention that these strawberry cream scones are light, its a recipe I’s love to try. I love anything with strawberries in it. Definitely a different kind of treat for Valentines’ Day.

  4. 5 stars
    I do like the scones we get here and hence never tried them as they are very dry. But this Strawberry cream scones looks soft and having the texture I would love. Loving the different curd you have on the plate. As a whole this is very tempting.

  5. I made these yesterday. I did not have mascarpone at but subbed in cream cheese. They were a big hit, very light and flaky. I reduced the baking time to 20 minutes since I made them smaller than traditional size. Excellent recipe
