  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon strawberry balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 pound fresh strawberries hulled and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 7 teaspoons water
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk them together to aerate them. Gently stir in the mascarpone cheese, strawberry balsamic vinegar and fresh strawberries until it just comes together into a sticky dough. Dust your clean hands with a little extra flour and bring it together into a ball, then flatten it out into an even disc about 6 inches in diameter on a well floured surface. Sprinkle the top with flour as well.
  2. Cut the disc of dough into 8 equal wedges by quartering it, then cutting each quarter in half. Transfer the wedges to the baking sheet and bake the scones for 15-20 minutes. They should be puffy and golden and just baked through. While they bake, make the easy drizzle for topping. Simply stir the mascarpone, balsamic, powdered sugar, vanilla and water together thoroughly until it is a thin mixture perfect for drizzling.
  3. When the scones are done, let them cool for a few minutes. While they cool, drizzle the mascarpone mixture generously on top. Serve them immediately with great tea or coffee and enjoy!
