Description

These scones are great with jam and butter or clotted cream.

Ingredients

2/3 cup
flour, all-purpose
1/3 cup
flour, whole wheat
2 tablespoons
sugar
1 teaspoon
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon
salt
3 tablespoons
butter (cold, cut or grated into small pieces)
6 tablespoons
heavy cream
1  
eggs (separated)
1 teaspoon
vanilla extract
3/4 cup
raspberries, fresh or frozen

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, egg yolk and vanilla. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, blend the cold butter with the flour mixture until it resembles coarse bread crumbs. Gently toss the raspberries with the flour and butter mixture, and slowly add the cream and egg yolk mixture. Gently blend just until the dough holds together. Place the dough on a floured surface and gently pat out until about ½- to 1-inch thick. Cut the dough into 3-inch circles using a cookie or biscuit cutter, and place on a greased or non-stick baking sheet. Gently push the remaining scraps of dough back together and cut more scones until all the dough is used. Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg white and bake for 10-14 minutes until just starting to brown.
