Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper; Next, place the strawberries on paper towels to absorb liquid and set these items aside.
In a different bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, butter, vanilla, and salt. Use a pastry blender to cut in butter until the mixture looks like coarse, pea-sized crumbs. Then stir the strawberries in, and gently toss the ingredients. Quickly stir everything together until it is blended well and let the dough to rest for 2 minutes.
Next put the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth and satiny. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet and pat it into an 8-inch round. Use a serrated knife to cut the dough into wedge-shaped pieces. Separate the wedges on the baking sheet, and spread them apart.
