Glazed Raspberry Scone

Ingredients & Directions:
(adapted from here)

2 C Flour
1/3 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 T chilled butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 C plus 3 tablespoons whipping cream
1/3 C (about) raspberry jam (do not use seedless)
1/2 C powdered sugar
About 4-5 Fresh Raspberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large bowl. Add butter rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles fine meal. Gradually add 1 cup cream, mixing until dough comes together. Make small balls of dough and flatten each one with your hand, or rolling pin if you prefer. Make sure you make a top and bottom for each scone; fill with 1 generous teaspoon jam (jam will show at edges). Transfer to baking sheet. Bake scones until brown, about 18 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool scones until slightly warm.

Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, and remaining 3 tablespoons cream, and raspberries in bowl to blend. Spread glaze over scones. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.

I felt a bit like Paula Deen, y'all, with all that butter running through my fingers.

I used a piece of aluminum foil on the counter, lightly floured to flatten the balls of dough.

While the scones are cooking you should make the raspberry glaze. I thought of adding the fresh raspberries to the glaze after I made the glaze base. It just looked so plain. I really liked how it turned out and will definitely try it again with other fruit.

I glazed the scones on a wire rack, while resting the wire rack over the baking sheet, that way I kept the mess contained to one place.

I hate to toot my own horn, no I don't, but these were delicious. I seriously ate four scones right after I finished taking all the pictures.


  1. these look aaaaamazinggggg :) I'm going to attempt to make them but something tells me yours will be better :)See you tonight!


  2. Hey! I think this is the first thing you’ve listed with out meat (or eggs, which are meat–to–be). I’ll have to try it before you change the recipe to be bacon–wrapped glazed raspberry scones!

  3. erik! mmm..bacon wrapped glazed raspberry scones sound delicious!! i believe my asparagus was meat & egg free as well as the pasta pie could be made with vegan past/quinoa pasta
