I am loving all the fresh fruit that I can buy right now. In fact I think I have only eaten fruit today...... And when the fruit starts to "turn" before I can eat it all, I find a recipe to use it in. And that is just where I got the idea to make these.

Strawberry Choc.-Chip Scones
*adapted this from Cook with Sara's: Strawberry Scones*
1/2 C. FF Sour Cream
1 C. FF Milk
4 1/2 C. Flour
1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 TBSP. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 C. Margarine; cubed in pieces
2 C. Fresh Strawberries; chopped
1 tsp. Almond Extract
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 C. Mini Chocolate Chips
Preheat Oven to 425
Start by beating together the milk, sour cream, almond extract, cinnamon and eggs then set aside. In a large bowl or mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the pieces of Margarine and cut together until well blended. Next add the cho.-chips and coat with flour mixture.Doing the same with the strawberries. Pour in the wet ingredients, stir well. Turn out onto a parchment lined sheet pan, forming into 1 or 2 rounds. Using a lightly sprayed knife cut into the desired portion size. I then sprinkled with just a bit more of sugar.
Bake on middle rack in the oven for 20-24 minutes or until center is done. Make sure to allow the scones to totally cool before separating.
*Some things you might want to add: coconut, almonds, orange or lemon zest. You could make a nice glaze to top it off as well.
*Note: These are NOT a sweet scone*
