Strawberry Basil Scones with Lemon Balsamic Glaze

So if you tried my recipe for strawberry pound cake with basil whipped cream, you know how awesome the unusual combination of strawberries and basil is. When we made scones in baking class last week and I wanted to do an original variation on them, that was the combination I first thought of. I wasn't sure if the flavors would still work well together after the basil was actually cooked, but they turned out great, and the unique glaze which everyone was pretty skeptical about made them even more fabulous. Perfect combination of sweet, savory, and tangy, wrapped up in a scrumptiously soft, flaky scone. One of my chefs said they were "totally awesome."
