Strawberry Saffron Scones

Local strawberries in Houston don’t come around very often. So when the smiling farmer at Sustainable Vegetable Gardens from Missouri City offered me a taste of his crop, I could not resist.
Bursting with sweetness and rich flavor, the berries were smaller and slightly misshapen than the supermarket variety. They also have less water content so are easier to bake with. I bought some and hurried home, dreaming of ways to enjoy them.
These strawberry scones are made with saffron-infused yogurt and make a perfect accompaniment to a cup of steaming chai or coffee for breakfast.
