If you don’t know yet, I love scones! I love them in any shape and flavor. That buttery and flaky texture and the different fruity toppings make it all better. Scones are the easiest dessert to throw together and everyone loves them! I have never met anyone who said ‘no’ to a fresh scone.

This scone recipe is slightly different than the usual ‘pat a circle and cut into eight wedges’. It’s time to get creative! These have the festive look to them and just perfect for these days, where everyone is eating everything Christmas! In fact, these look a bit like Christmas cookies – a 3″ flaky cookie.

When you cut the dough with biscuit cutter, you will have dough scraps. You can either pat circles from those scraps or just bake them as scraps. Do not throw these away! Those are that same scones minus the raspberries inside. 🙂 Never dispose dough unless you really have to.

When making raspberry scones, it’s important to keep all the dairy ingredients cold. The eggs, heavy cream and butter. Cold dairy ingredients will make the scones flaky, moist and melt-in-your mouth. Because we roll out the dough and letting the dough spend some time at room temperature, I refrigerate them for 10-15 minutes just before the oven to keep them flaky and irresistible!

Raspberry Scones Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter – refrigerated
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream – refrigerated
  • 1 large egg – refrigerated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • fresh raspberries (30 or 3 per scone)
  • powdered sugar for dusting – optional

How to Make Raspberry Scones:

1. Line a parchment paper with a 11×17 baking sheet and set aside. In a large bowl, combine and whisk 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tsps baking powder. Grate 1/3 cup refrigerated unsalted butter into the flour mixture on the large holes of grater. Work in the butter with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

2. In a separate mixing bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine and whisk 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp salt until smooth. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients.

3. Stir all ingredients with a fork until the dough starts to come together. Using your hand, continue by pressing the dough against the bowl into a ball. It would seem as there’s not enough liquid in dough and you’ll see lose flour, but as you press – the dough will come together. (Do not overwork the dough!).

Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead 3-4 times, and pat into a rectangle. Roll the dough out to about 11×17 rectangle or 1/4″ thick. Using a 3” diameter biscuit cutter, cut out 20 circles. (I got 16, gathered dough scraps, rolled out the dough again and another 4). (Do not dispose those extra dough pieces. Bake them and enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea. ). Place 3 raspberries in center on a dough circle open side down. Cover with second circle and gently go around edges to connect and seal the two pieces as you would seal a pierogi. Take the scone into hands and lightly press your thumb in at the bottom to make the raspberries pop out on top (use your fingers to help make the opening if necessary). Repeat for remaining scones.

4. Place the scones on a prepared baking sheet 1-2” apart and refrigerate for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to a 400°F. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden (I did 13).
