Raspberry Scones

Raspberry Scones with Raspberry Glaze - Tender and flaky scones drizzled with tangy raspberry glaze. By Let the Baking Begin! | @Letthebakingbgn

This is my second ‘go-to’ recipe  for Scones. First one I ever found and really liked was the Blueberry Scone recipe. It’s wonderful, made without eggs, but the texture is different from these Raspberry Scones. This one, has very crumbly and gentle texture, with slight crispiness on the outside and tang from both the raspberry glaze and the raspberries itself inside. Scones in general come together rather quickly, and this recipe is no different – just mix the dry, add the wet ingredients, mix, shape and bake, so you’ll be all done within 30 minutes. It’s always nice to have one of these recipes on hand, because when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, you don’t want to fuss in the kitchen for 6 hours, with sweat dripping from your forehead. So try it, I guarantee you will love it!

Raspberry Scones

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 16 mini scones

Ingredients

Scones

  • 2 cups flour
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold butter/margarine, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 lemon, zest of
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup heavy cream, chilled
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups raspberries

Sugar Crust

  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 5 tbsp sugar

Glaze

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 raspberries
  • ½ cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside
  2. In a food processor mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, for about 20 seconds. Add cubes of butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Add lemon zest.
  4. Whisk together egg, cream & vanilla extract. Add to the flour/butter mixture and allow the food processor to process everything until the dough starts to come together.
  5. Remove the dough onto working surface, bring everything together with hands and fold it together until it comes together into a dough ball.
  6. Roll it out on floured surface into a rectangle. Spread raspberries around. Roll the dough with the raspberries, starting from the narrower side, pressing the dough to extract air, as you roll.
  7. Keep rolling/stretching the roll out with your palms, until you get it to about 3 inches thick. Now cut it with a knife into 16 triangles, by cutting diagonally across the roll.
  8. Transfer the scones onto a baking sheet.
  9. Brush on the melted butter and generously sprinkle with sugar. This will give scones a crispy crust.
  10. Bake for 17 minutes, or until slightly golden.
  11. Transfer to cooling rack and allow to cool.

Make the glaze.

  1. Crush the raspberries, add lemon juice and the powdered sugar.
  2. Transfer into a ziplock bag. Snip off the end and drizzle tops of the scones in a zig-zag pattern. Alternatively, use a fork to drizzle the glaze on.
  3. Serve with tea or coffee.

Notes

Use any other berry you have on hand. If using frozen berries, do not thaw beforehand. Just add frozen berries to the dough.

    Would it be any different if i would do in a mixer, and what speed???

    • You could do it in a mixer, just grate the butter/margarine into the flour instead of cutting it into chunks and try to mix it as little as possible, on low to medium speeds. As soon as it starts coming together, it’s enough mixing.
