Raspberry Scones

Serves 45 scones


Butter, unsalted 15 ounces
Buttermilk, low-fat 1¼ quarts
Flour, all purpose, enriched 1½ pounds
Flour, whole wheat 1½ pounds
Sugar 8½ ounces
Baking Powder, double acting 3⅓ tablespoons
Baking Soda 2½ teaspoons
Salt 2½ teaspoons
Raspberries, IQF, frozen 21 ounces


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F and set fan to low setting, if possible.

  2. Melt the butter and allow to cool just a bit.

  3. Add the cold buttermilk to the melted butter. Let sit for a minute, then gently stir to create chunks of chilled butter mixed with the buttermilk. Set aside.

  4. Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  5. Add the frozen raspberries to the dry ingredients and stir once to just coat the raspberries with the flour mixture.

  6. Add the buttermilk and butter mixture. Gently mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened, then stop mixing. It is okay if there are a few lumps of flour. Do not overmix or the berries will break down and color the dough.

  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with vegetable oil.

  8. Use a #12 scoop to portion 1/3 cup mounds of scone dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Space scones 2 inches apart.

  9. Bake scones for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the tops are just golden brown.

  10. Cool scones on the sheet pan at room temperature.

    Note: Scones may be served warmed or room temperature.

  1. What a treat! Easy to make, effortless to serve and delicious. I did not have buttermilk in the kitchen so I used yogurt instead – they still came out great. I loved the idea to portion the scone dough with a scoop rather than make the traditional scone triangles. Because of the round shape, I was asked if they were biscuits but they still were eaten, every last crumb. Thank you.

  2. Wow. This is delicious. I did not have the raspberry bits for it but did buy some frozen Washington raspberry at store. It is a very easy recipe and the scones turned out wonderful. I used the remaining raspberry to make a yogurt/raspberry drizzle which was perfect for this. The next day they were still good so recipe could be made day before. I will have to recommend this to our dietitian for review. Thank you, I will definitely be making these at home.
