Roasted strawberries, like all things roasted, take on a deeper, caramelized flavor, especially when they are first sprinkled with brown sugar, as in this recipe. You'll want to serve the sauce not just with these scones but as a topping for ice cream or a filling for updated strawberry shortcakes, among other delicious uses. The scones, of course, are also worth making, and here they are shaped into triangles for a refreshing change of pace.
