Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bottom of a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together. Add the butter cubes. Using your fingertips or a pastry blender rub or cut the butter into the flour, until the dough resembles a crumbly meal with some pea-sized pieces of butter. (See Chef Tips if using a food processor for this step.)
  3. Add the strawberries and gently toss to coat the strawberries in flour. With a spatula, stir in the yogurt and milk, until mostly absorbed. Knead one or two times to form a dough.
  4. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and form into a disc about 2-inches thick. Cut into 8 to 10 pieces. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the strawberries have broken down and become juicy. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Once cooled, store in an airtight container or freeze.

Chef Tips

If using regular instead of Greek yogurt, omit the 2 tablespoons of milk from this recipe.

If you use a food processor for step 2, tip the flour, baking powder salt into the container. Pulse to mix, then add in the cubed butter. Continue pulsing until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs — it’s fine to have a few small lumps of butter. Pour into a large bowl and proceed with step 3.
