Sourdough Strawberry Scones

These sourdough strawberry scones are soft, tender and are a delicious way to use up some of that extra sourdough starter!

They are just the right amount of sweet, with the sourdough discard adding such a great flavor to an already wonderful treat. These scones are great for any occasion and although quite easy to make, would impress anyone who takes a bite.
