Scones are a biscuit like baked good but depending on the particular recipe can have a somewhat differing texture. These scones are a bit different that others I have made because they have a more muffin like consistency. However, I was still very happy with the results and thoroughly enjoyed eating them. I would gladly make them again and again!
I love scones because they are fairly easy to make and can take on a variety of flavors. Other than raspberry white chocolate, I have made cranberry lemon, cinnamon and pumpkin spice scones. I would like to try more scone flavors, maybe a blueberry, chocolate chip or cranberry orange. I think I might even make a plain kind just to use for eating with lemon curd…mmm, that sounds delicious!
Scone Making Tips
- Scone dough is thick and somewhat dry but should come together without leaving flour in the bowl. So if the dough is too dry to mix, you can add a little more heavy whipping cream, just be careful not to add too much.
- Scones are typically triangular-shaped but are baked in a circle. Before baking, score the dough by cutting into the proper amount of pieces. When you cut, only slide the knife part way through the dough.
- Scones also usually have some sort of liquid brushed on the top then sprinkled with coarse sugar. If you don’t have coarse sugar, you can just use regular granulated sugar instead.
