This homemade scone recipe is packed with sweet raspberries and almonds to make a delicious breakfast, brunch, or afternoon snack! Despite my penchant for going to bed early, spending my Saturday mornings watching cooking shows, and overall-grandma-like-actions, I’m actually in my 20s, or, as some might refer to me, a millennial or generation y-er.

I don’t love either term, as one sounds like a scientific test case and the other a punchline, but what I particularly don’t like is the generalized stereotypes either term presumes, especially the one claiming millennials no longer eat cereal.

Because that is a dirty lie.

There is at least one twenty-something out there who thinks cereal is all that and a bag of chips (ahem, me).

This homemade scone recipe is packed with sweet raspberries and almonds to make a delicious breakfast, brunch, or afternoon snack! When I’m not eating or proclaiming my love for cereal and distaste for hasty generalizations, it’s safe to say a scone recipe isn’t far from my mind.

I have a real big thing for biscuits (it was such a big deal that back in college I would get multiple texts from people on the mornings the caf was serving biscuits and honey for breakfast–and I would eat them with a side of honey bunches of oats) and scones are just like a sweetened version of a classic biscuit.

Carbs, sugar, and biscuits?

Absolutely.

This homemade scone recipe is packed with sweet raspberries and almonds to make a delicious breakfast, brunch, or afternoon snack! I love these scones as much as I love cereal, so obviously, that’s a lot. If there’s one takeaway from this, it’s that cereal and scones rule all.

Ingredients

    Scones
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp lemon zest (it brightens the scones without giving it a lemon flavor)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • Glaze
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • slivered almonds, for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. Once combined, cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Whisk together heavy cream, sour cream, egg, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in the raspberries and mix until just combined.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and pat into a 1/2" thick circle. Cut into 8 triangles.
  6. Brush the tops of each scone with a little bit of heavy cream, and bake for 15-16 minutes, or until scones are golden brown.
  7. While the scones are cooling, mix together powdered sugar (starting with 1 cup), heavy whipping cream (beginning with 2 Tbsp), and almond extract. If the glaze seems too thin, add in the last 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. If it seems too thick, add in the last Tbsp of heavy cream.
  8. Pour the glaze over the scones, sprinkle with almonds, and enjoy!

    I saw that article about not eating cereal! And then there was a rebuttle that came out and explained it. So crazy! Where do people even come up with these ideas? I would much rather munch on this scone for breakfast than some cereal any day! Love this flavor, Michelle!

    I don’t think you have grandma-like actions at all. You just know what you like (and what you don’t) and are true to who you are! I love that, and I love your scones. Raspberry and almond is a wonderful combination!
