  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream plus more for brushing the scones.
  • 1 cup frozen fresh raspberries
  • 1 lemon zested


  • 1/2 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed and strained
  • 2 cups powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter softened



  • Preheat the oven to 400° and line a rimmed metal baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Sift together all the dry ingredients and zest of one lemon.
  • Using a pastry cutter (or 2 forks) blend the butter into the flour until it resembles wet crumbly sand.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream, mix just until combined making sure not to over work the dough.
  • Gently fold in the frozen raspberries, be careful not to mash or break the berries.
  • Press the dough out onto a floured surface forming a rectangle approx: 12x3 by 1 1/4 inches thick.
  • Cut the rectangle in to half (width wise) then cut those halves into half, forming 4 rectangles. Next cut across the 4 rectangles lengthwise creating 8 squares.
  • Cut each square in half diagonally, leaving you with 16 triangles.
  • Brush the tops with a little heavy cream and bake for 15-18 minutes. Let the scones cool a little before applying the glaze.


  • Sift the powdered sugar and whisk in the strained lemon juice.
  • Whisk in the butter and zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Whisk again and set aside until scones are slightly cooled.
  • Drizzle, brush or dip the scones in the glaze.
