FAST RASPBERRY SCONES RECIPE (Adapted from Martha Stewart)
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar (*I used a blend of brown sugar & white sugar for the topping)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries (6 ounces)
Preheat oven to 400. In a food processor, pulse together flour, cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter and pulse until pea-size pieces form (*I used a pastry cutter instead of a food processor & it worked out great!) In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk and egg yolk. Slowly pour buttermilk mixture through feed tube into processor, pulsing until dough just comes together. (*Do not overwork the dough!)
Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface and sprinkle raspberries on top. Knead three times to fold in raspberries (there may be loose pieces of dough and a stray berryor two). Gather and pat dough into a 1-inch-thick square and cut or pull apart into 2-inch pieces. Place pieces, about 2 inches apart, on two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets and sprinkle tops with 1 tablespoon sugar.
Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through (*Mine took 23 minutes because they were bigger in size). Let scones cool slightly on sheets on wire racks. Serve warm or at room temperature!
I have a confession to make: I ♥ scones in a really sinful way 😉 Scones are definitely a pastry indulgence I adore and simply refuse to live without. I love fruit scones the best and let me tell you that Whole Foods has a Pumpkin Scone that they make fresh every day & it’s simply divine.
Needless to say, when I saw the recipe for Fast Raspberry Scones from Martha Stewart, I knew I had to try it out. First off, I passionately love raspberries & they are probably my favorite fruit (plus they have lots of fibre! Bonus!) and what better way to start a Sunday morning than with fresh baked scones 🙂 Heavenly!
♥ I hope you make some time to make these! Sinfully divine!
