I first discovered scones several years ago when I went to a little tea house in Mesa, AZ, with my grandma. It was awesome. We had delicious hot tea, and an assortment of tea sandwiches, cakes, mini quiche, fruit, and scones. It was awesome. I said that already, but it’s no less true. I miss that tea house, actually, and my grandma too. Now that we’re living in San Antonio, I haven’t found a tea house even remotely comparable, so I spend my time pining for a trip to Teavana, or a pretty tea set to make my yummy teas with. Le sigh. But at least I have one thing: this easy raspberry scones recipe!
I have to say that these scones are a little bit different from traditional scones because a little more cake-like, instead of crunchy-crispy. But damn are they are ever good. They remind me a little of Starbucks’ scones, except way better, cause, ya know, homemade. And they are so easy to make that you’ll be wowing your friends with those mad skillz. I mean, seriously, I pretty much only use the food processor to prep the dough for this easy raspberry scones recipe. EEEEEE-ZEEEEEE.
I had the dough ready in less than 5 minutes, but the only thing I will mention (because I ruined several batches, ha), is to be sure you use a LOT of flour on the table to kneading and rolling, because this dough is sticky and it WILL stick hard and not come off. I recommend rotating the dough when you roll it out, adding a bit more flour with each turn.
Take your raspberry filling, whether freshly smashed or jellied, and cover half that dough in it, then fold over, seal the edges, and cut into cute little triangles. I made mine more bite-sized because I used them for a princess party that I’ll be sharing tomorrow. So be sure to check that out, too. 😉
And what makes an easy raspberry scones recipe complete? How about some tart lime glaze?!? OMG, I swear the glaze makes this scone, it is so good. All you need is some freshly grated lime zest and you are set. Keep those limes cold until you are ready to zest, it will grate far easier when cold!
Enjoy these scones with my pumpkin spice latte, or a delicious green, or berry smoothie!
