Farmhouse Scones and Strawberry Shortcake (Vegan)

Vegan Strawberry Shortcakes on Farmhouse Scones

Every farmhouse kitchen needs a basic scone recipe, and this one is as good as they come. I’ve made others over the years that are perhaps more impressive due to their various embellishments (debatable), but this one is perfect for showcasing homemade jams and spreads, and is my go-to for strawberry shortcakes.
