I love the combination of raspberry and rose! I've tried it in cookies and turnovers and recently decided to adapt a scone recipe to include both. These are lovely with a cup of floral tea. Sprinkle dried rose petals on top for a pretty presentation.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.

  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl.

  • Grate in 1/3 of the butter using the large holes of a box grater. Toss lightly with your fingertips until coated with flour. Repeat twice more with remaining butter.

  • Whisk 1/2 cup cream, egg, and rose water together in a small bowl with a fork. Pour over the flour-butter mixture. Mix with a fork just until large clumps of dough form. Gently mix in raspberries.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Bring together and gently pat into a round about 3/4-inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife.

  • Arrange wedges on the baking sheet. Brush tops with 2 tablespoons cream and sprinkle with raspberry sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't have or can't find raspberry-flavored sugar, turbinado works well.

The Nielsen-Massey brand of rose water is quite different from the more traditional Middle Eastern rose water. I wouldn't swap the two.

Since scones taste best the day they are baked, I like to store them raw in the freezer and bake off a few at a time. Keep them on the baking sheet until frozen solid, then transfer to resealable plastic bags and seal well. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time.
