Raspberry-Mint Scones
 
Yield: 12
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • ¾ cup freeze-dried raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon cold heavy whipping cream, divided
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add raspberries and mint, stirring to blend.
  4. In a liquid-measuring cup, combine ¾ cup cream and vanilla extract, stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture, stirring to combine. (If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time.) Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms.
  5. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 4 to 5 times. Using a rolling pin, roll dough to a 1-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch fluted round cutter, cut 12 scones from dough, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place scones 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Brush tops of scones with remaining 1 tablespoon cream.
  7. Bake until edges are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, approximately 20 minutes.
  8. Serve warm.
