Raspberry Scones are not only a perfect treat for summer, but all year round. The raspberries should not be fresh, but rather frozen. Finish them off with a bit of complimentary Almond Glaze.

Check out my other instructables on my profile, and on my NEW FOOD WEBSITE: Michael's Test Kitchen !

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients: (makes 8 scones)

2 ½ cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

3 tablespoons sugar

1 cup buttermilk

¼ teaspoon almond extract

12 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen

¾ cup frozen raspberries

For Glaze:

¾ cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

¼ teaspoon almond extract

1 tablespoon butter, melted

Step 2: Dry & Wet

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. (If using convection, preheat At 350).

In a large bowl, quickly whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, salt, baking soda, and sugar.

In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, and almond extract.

Step 3: Frozen Butter

With a food processor on the ‘shred’ setting (like for shredding carrots and other vegetables), shred the frozen butter.

Cut these shreds into the flour mixture in the large bowl.

Step 4:

Fold the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. If it is too dry, then add 1 -2 tablespoons of milk until moist. Be careful to mix just until combined. Do not over work the dough.

Then dump in the raspberries, and fold those in carefully. Don’t worry if the raspberries break up too much, they’ll still be fine.

Step 5: Shape the Dough and Bake

Turn the resulting dough onto a piece of parchment/wax paper. Carefully shape dough into an 8-inch circle, ¾ inch thick. Be careful not to overwork the dough.

Cut out 8 pieces like you would a pie.

Place these 8 pieces onto a baking sheet, brush the tops over with some milk, and bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes or longer, until the scones are golden.

Step 6: Make the Almond Glaze

Meanwhile, be making the almond glaze, by beating all the glaze ingredients together (powdered sugar, milk, melted butter, and almond extract).

If the consistency is too thick, add a tiny bit more milk. If it is too runny, add more powdered sugar.

Drizzle over baked scones.

Step 7: Done!

Serve warm.

We just had these for breakfast. Great thanks for sharing.
