These delicious little scones made with strawberry jam are a perfect project to make with kids. Why not bake up a batch and plan a tea party?



3 ½ cups 875 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1 cup 250 mL granulated sugar
2 tbsp 30 mL baking powder
½ tsp 2 mL salt
2 tbsp 30 mL grated lemon zest
1 cup 250 mL Crisco® All Vegetable Shortening, cold, cut into small pieces
1 cup plus 1 tbsp 265 mL cold Carnation® Fat Free Evaporated Skim Milk
2 eggs
1 jar 250 mL Smucker’s® Pure Strawberry Jam


1 cup 250 mL icing sugar
2 tbsp 30 mL lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scones: Combine, in a large bowl, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add lemon zest. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Tip

    Teach your kids about fractions. Make an experiment by having them measure 1 cup into a container and then measure three 1/3 cups into a separate container. Does it equal the same amount?

  4. Combine, in a medium bowl, milk and eggs. Add to flour mixture. Gather together into a ball and knead everything gently together. Do not over mix.
  5. Tip

    Let your kids knead the dough with their clean hands - no equipment necessary! They'll love feeling the texture between their fingers.

  6. Pat, on a lightly floured surface, dough out until it is approximately ¾” (2 cm) thick. Cut into 2” (5 cm) rounds. Gather up scraps and repeat with remaining dough.
  7. Tip

    Have your kids pick their favourite cookie cutters and try making stars, hearts, triangles or anything they’d like! They could also use their hands to shape mini-sized scones.

  8. Place on prepared baking sheet. Press centres down gently with a tablespoon to make a depressed area to hold the jam. Spoon 1 tbsp (15 ml) jam into centres.
  9. Bake in preheated oven, 16 minutes, until lightly golden.
  10. Tip

    While the scones are baking, have your kids make different coloured icing. Just add a few drops of food colouring to the glaze and drizzle away!

  11. Glaze: Combine, in a small bowl, icing sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle over scones when they come out of the oven and then again 10 minutes later.
