Raspberry Cream Scones

You need look no further if you’ve been searching for the perfect scone recipe. This is it. These raspberry cream scones come together quickly…and instead of my usual dried fruit addition, I mixed in some luscious, plump red raspberries.  These drew all sorts of praise from my knitting group…even sans clotted cream…rich and tender, they really were excellent without any accoutrements.

Raspberry Cream Scones~


Adapted from America's Test Kitchen

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 425º.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Cut in butter with pastry blender until it looks like coarse born meal with a few slightly larger lumps. Gently stir in fruit. Add heavy cream and stir with spatula or fork till dough begins to form.
  3. Pour out onto counter top and knead very carefully till dough comes together into a slightly sticky mound...only about 5-10 seconds. Pat into a rectangle about 1 inch tall. Cut into 8-12 rounds using a biscuit cutter.
  4. Place onto parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. May brush with cream and sprinkle with sugar if desired. Bake 11-14 minutes till light brown. Cool on rack 10 minutes before serving. May serve warm or at room temperature. These freeze well.
  5. You may also make these in the food processor. Be careful not to over process.

Yield: 8-12 depending on the size of your biscuit cutter.

    Total time: 20-30 minutes

      These are best on the day made. Freeze leftovers and just pop in the microwave for a delicious treat.

        1. Oh boy, scones. I just love scones. Something about the texture. I’ll bet raspberry is delicious in a scone.

        2. Pegasuslegend says:

          One of my favorite scones, make them all summer long in season they never looked this good will be trying your recipe next time! Lovely photo do you give lessons? I need them these are just stunning!

        3. Like the idea of putting the raspberries inside, makes for a much flavorful scone. The crackly appearance gives me the impression they would just melt in your mouth. Great post!

        4. The Mom Chef says:

          These look amazing. I love, love, love scones and raspberries are my favorite fruit. Thank you for sharing the recipe. You can’t go wrong with America’s Test Kitchen, can you. Claudia’s right too; the photography is stunning.

        8. Lovely and nice Lizzy, the red is striking out here and there between the scones.

        9. Those look wonderful, Lizzy! Lately, I tried making some peach scones (low-carb) and they really were not great. I will take some tips.

        10. Mmm, these look fantastic! I love jam on scones, but these look like they’d be perfect on their own!

        11. Lizzy what nice idea for scones!! look delicious! I think baking is far my favorite thing of cook! lol

        12. Three-Cookies says:

          The magic ingredients are raspberries and heavy cream I suppose. This does sound absolutely divine, buttery and creamy!

        13. Curry and Comfort says:

          Ooh, I made some of these a while ago and they were the most moist (sounds weird), ok, moistestest scones I’d ever had and very delicious with the freh raspberries.

          Loved your Raspberry scones. I have made scones with strawberry and blueberry. But never really tried raspberry in baking. they are so delicate.

        26. Cassie//Bake Your Day says:

          I love scones. The raspberry looks so beautiful in them too. Yum!

        27. Sounds similar to my scone recipe and if I toss in raspberries then that means I get to have the scones to myself, as my wife doesn’t enjoy raspberries. 🙂

        28. These are gorgeous and I HAVE been looking for the perfect scone recipe–they’re always too dry or too sweet, but I’ll definitely try this one.

        58. Nami | Just One Cookbook says:

          My favorite scone is in Monterey where I have to drive at least 1.5 hours. I’ve been meaning to make one myself and your recipe sounds pretty easy for me to follow. I bookmarked and let’s see how soon I can make this… =P Eventually I will. For now I’m satisfying that I found and bookmarked the delicious one. lol.

        59. Ooo raspberry cream! Delicious! I am somewhat addicted to eating scones so I try not to make them too often, but I will have to try these babies out!
