Ingredients

Scones

  • 3 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup crème fraîche
  • 2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon raspberry flavor extract
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries place small box of berries in freezer overnight
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Icing Drizzle

  • 2 cups powder sugar
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

Instructions

scone dough:

  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well, set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat vanilla extract, raspberry extract, and 1 ¼ cups heavy whipping cream on medium-high with wire whisk attachment until soft peaks form. Add crème fraîche, beating until combined.
  • Next, using a rubber spatula carefully fold the white chocolate chips and dry ingredients with the whipping cream to combine.
  • Add frozen raspberries by folding by hand. Your dough might get a little wet from the frozen berries, that's okay! Just work to distribute the raspberries through the scone dough. Don't overmix.
  • Turn dough on lightly floured board. Knead carefully until soft dough forms shape into ball, push out into 1” thickness into a square shape.
  • Next, cut scones into rounds using a biscuit cutter or cut small triangles.
  • This recipe makes 32 small scones. Cut square scone dough into 4 quarters, then cut each of those quarters into 8 small triangles.

bake scones:

  • You can bake all 32 scones or place unbaked scones in layers, on parchment pieces in a freezer safe container.
  • Bake scones at 375 15 minutes until edges are just turning golden brown.
  • Bake FROZEN scones at 375 for 20 minutes until edges are just turning golden brown.

Icing Drizzle:

  • In a small bowl, mix the powder sugar, melted butter, milk, and vanilla with a spatula. Once it becomes a thinner and able to pipe out of a bag, scoop into a freezer zip lock bag.
  • Snip off a tiny corner of the end, push the icing down into that corner, twist the bag and go back and forth motion, over the scones to add an icing drizzle.
  • Or place icing in a squeeze bottle (these are easy to find in grocery stores) and using the same back and forth motion, drizzle icing on each cooled scone.

Notes

icing:

The icing will keep in the fridge in a ziplock bag or plastic squeeze bottle for a couple of weeks. Let it rest on the counter an hour or so until it softens, then drizzle on your cooled scones!
