Making Raspberry Scones
Making these breakfast scones is super easy when using a food processor! Place the dry ingredients and the cold butter into a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form. If you don’t have a food processor, you can still make this recipe! Just use a pastry blender or two large forks to cut the cold butter into the flour. Transfer the flour and butter mixture into a large bowl.
Next, add in the wet ingredients and gently mix the batter until a soft dough forms. The dough should be slightly sticky; try not to overwork the dough, otherwise it will become too dense. Fold in the berries and white chocolate and then shape the raspberry scones onto a baking sheet. When done baking, drizzle with a simple glaze or melted white chocolate and add more freeze-dried berries on top for more color! Keep the scones stored in an airtight container.
I use freeze-dried raspberries in my white chocolate scone recipe to add maximum berry flavor without adding extra moisture. Fresh raspberries are super juicy and will also work in a pinch of you don’t have freeze-dried berries. Just keep in mind the berries will release juices while baking. Toss the fresh berries in corn starch to keep the juices from flowing too much. I get my dried berries at Trader Joe’s or online on Amazon (affiliate link). And, use some of those freeze-dried raspberries to garnish the top! Their bright color looks incredible!
