Very Raspberry Scones

When Husband lived in New York, his favorite breakfast was a cup of coffee and a scone. He doesn’t eat scones often at home. He always orders them when we visit The City.

For Husband’s birthday, I thought it would be nice to make him scones instead of a birthday cake. Don’t get me wrong, we like a slice of cake on our birthdays. What we do not like is the temptation to dive head first into the rest of the birthday cake after the birthday is done.

Not that I would know anything about that.


I want to do something special with Husband’s birthday scones. Think. Think. Think.




Husband flipped his lid when I made blueberry Popsicles with Naturipe Berry Quick Blueberry Snacks. Mow that I am reading grocery store sales fliers more carefully, I regularly buy Naturipe blueberries when they are on sale. 


Husband is enjoying the fruits of my not so extreme couponing labor – literally. So much so that he suggested (numerous times and somewhat strongly) that I buy any Naturipe berry I find when I find it.

Making scones with Naturipe raspberries will make Husband a happy birthday boy.

Let’s do it!

Very Raspberry Scone Recipe


Ingredients:

2 packages of Naturipe raspberries (approximately 2 cups)
2 cups of flour
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoon cold butter, sliced into pieces
½ cup milk
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg

Make it:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees (F.)
  2. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt in a bowl.
  3. Either cut the butter to the dry mixture using a pastry cutter, two knifes, or food processor until the mixture looks like cookie crumbs. 



  1. Mix the raspberries into the dough mixture.
  2. Mix the milk, vanilla extra, and egg in a separate bowl.
  3. Mix the liquid mixture into the dough mixture.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of the dough unto a baking stone or cookie sheet.
  5. Bake the scones for 15 – 20 minutes until they are golden brown.

Husband happily enjoyed his birthday scones. After his first bite, he declared that I did not make Raspberries scones but RADberriey scones.

Thanks Naturipe for helping me make my guy’s day.
