Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Set the whisked wet ingredients aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Slice the butter into chunks then add to the flour mixture. Work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles damp sand (use your hands or a pastry cutter).
Allow the strawberries to thaw slightly, or microwave for a few seconds until slightly softened. Roughly chop the strawberries into bite-sized pieces. Stir the strawberries and white chocolate pieces into the whisked egg mixture.
Pour the egg mixture with strawberries and chocolate into the bowl of dry ingredients (flour, butter, etc.). Stir with a spoon until it forms a ball of dough. If necessary, use your hands to mix the last bits of flour into the dough.
Turn the lump of dough out onto a lightly floured surface and flatten it into a 6-8 inch diameter circle (about 1.5 inches thick). Cut the circle into 8 wedges. Arrange the wedges on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 13-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden brown.
Transfer the baked scones to a cooling rack. To make the icing, stir together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth. Wait until the scones are completely cool, then drizzle the icing over top.**
**If you add the icing while the scones are warm, it will melt and slide off.
