Double Chocolate Scones are easy to make, decadent chocolate scones, filled with white chocolate chips, and drizzled with a simple glaze on top!

Do you enjoy scones? We sure do, in our home! I’ve been making them for YEARS and YEARS, and always love searching for, and trying new scone recipes.  Recently I found an old, handwritten recipe on a 3″x5″ index card I saved at least 15 years ago (LONG before the internet and  Pinterest made it so easy to save recipes!).

Unfortunately, I had not written down what magazine, newspaper or cookbook I found the original recipe in, so I can’t give due credit to the original author.  All these years later, I still had not ever made these scones, but they sounded good. So… I made a couple basic changes to the original recipe and ended up with 8 delicious double chocolate scones! Here’s how to make them.

Make The Dough For The Double Chocolate Scones

Preheat your oven to 375° F.  Mix flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in VERY COLD butter, using a hand held pastry blender or two forks. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until butter is reduced to the size of peas.

Mixing ingredients with butter to make double chocolate scones.

Add plain yogurt and one egg yolk to the mixture in the bowl. Stir mixture by hand, or with an electric beater until blended. The dough is fairly thick, so if you are mixing by hand, it will take a few minutes to bind together.

Add the white chocolate chips to the dough, and place the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough with the palm of your hand 10 times, folding the dough over, after each time. Do this until the dough comes together in a nice ball.

Eggs, plain yogurt, and white chocolate chips are added to the double chocolate scones dough.

Pat and shape the double chocolate scones dough out with your hands until it is formed into a 9″ wide circle.  Use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter to evenly cut the dough into 8 pie shaped wedges.

Place the eight scones onto an UNGREASED large baking sheet ( I used my ratty old pizza pan!). Leave about an inch in between each of the wedges, so they stay separated while baking.

The double chocolate scones dough is rolled into a 9 inch circle, then cut into 8 pieces.

Bake The Scones

Bake the double chocolate scones at 375° F. for 17-18 minutes. When done, remove pan from oven, and let the scones cool for 5-10 still on the pan. Because ovens can vary in temperatures, I would recommend checking the scones at the 15 minute mark, to check for “doneness”.

Place a piece of wax paper on the counter, and transfer the double chocolate scones from the pan to a wire rack (on top of the wax paper). TIP: The wax paper will collect any drips when you drizzle the scones with glaze later, making your cleanup much easier!

Double chocolate scones are baked, then placed on wire rack to cool.

Glaze The Baked Double Chocolate Scones

Once the double chocolate scones have cooled, it is time to add the decorative glaze! The simple powdered sugar glaze helps make them look good, and adds an extra touch of sweetness to the finished scones!

Making the glaze is simple! Mix together powdered sugar and a few drops of water at a time, in a small bowl. Stir. Add a couple more drops of water, and stir. Continue to do this until the glaze is an easy to drizzle consistency… not too thick, and not too thin!

If glaze is too thick, add a couple drops of water. Got it too thin? Add more powdered sugar. Use a spoon or fork, and decoratively drizzle the glaze over the tops of the scones. The wax paper below will catch any messy drips!

A powdered sugar glaze is drizzled over the baked double chocolate scones before serving.

After glazing the scones, let the icing firm up (it will only take a few minutes), and then you double chocolate scones are ready to serve!

The glaze on top is allowed to firm up, before serving the double chocolate scones.

Serve The Double Chocolate Scones!

You can either just pick up a scone and enjoy it, as is, OR you can get all fancy with them! We usually just shove them into our mouths (truth), but sometimes, (especially for company) I want the presentation to be memorable! Remember… you eat with your EYES first, right?

I sifted cocoa powder very lightly on a small white plate, and then placed the double chocolate scone on top. A big dollop of aerosol whipped cream was sprayed next to the scone, and the whipped cream was garnished with a thin, half slice of a Cara Cara orange!

This recipe for double chocolate scones is a KEEPER! We really enjoyed them! I even put a few away in our freezer, so my husband and I can enjoy them for another breakfast soon!

Hope you have a wonderful day.  May your joys be many, and your sorrows few! Thank you for visiting this blog. I trust you will find some wonderful recipes to make for those you love!

When I saw a recipe recently for these chocolate caramel pecan scones, I just KNEW I wanted to try them… I couldn’t help myself!  I made a batch for Easter this year, and guess what? They are GOOD, and easy to prepare, even if you’ve never made scones before! Here’s how:

How To Make Chocolate Caramel Pecan Scones

Preheat oven to 400 degrees before beginning.  Place parchment paper or a silicone mat onto a large cookie sheet.  Place flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl.  Cut VERY COLD butter into small chunks and add to the flour.

Cut the butter into the dry ingredients, using a pastry cutter (shown), or 2 forks, or by using your fingers to pinch the ingredients together. Do this until crumbs resemble small peas, and butter is incorporated into mixture. Add the egg and whipping cream to the bowl. Stir to combine.

Mix the chocolate chips, caramels and pecans gently into dough, until fully blended. Place the dough ball onto a lightly floured work surface, and form dough into a circle, by pressing down and shaping with hands.

Circle should be about 8-9 inches wide and about 2 inches high (approx.). Once formed, cut dough into 8 equal sized wedges using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.

Place wedges onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet (or onto a silicone mat). Place them in a circle, but separate each piece slightly from the others (as shown below). Bake at 400 degrees for 18-10 minutes (check them at 18 minutes- mine were done!).  The scones should be golden brown.

Remove baking sheet from oven. Let scones rest for a couple minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Blackberry Scones

Delicious blackberry scones are easy to make, using frozen blackberries! The scones are absolutely perfect for a simple breakfast or afternoon snack.Delicious blackberry scones are easy to make year round, using frozen blackberries! The scones are absolutely perfect for a simple breakfast or afternoon snack.
Anyone who knows me well, knows I love a good scone… and I sure do love these yummy Blackberry Scones for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

Blackberries grow wild all over the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  We have a forest park behind our home and the blackberry vines creep over our back fence (until we madly hack them back each Fall!).  This summer we have a bumper crop of blackberries, free for the taking, and so it is a perfect scenario for making blackberry scones!

I’ve been picking berries every other day, and get about a quart of berries each time.  I’ve already used them to make  a Blackberry Cobbler, a Berry and Orange Spinach Salad, and  Blackberry Pie Bars, so now I’m making blackberry scones, and have saved a bunch more to make jam. Yeehaw!

Blackberries growing in our backyard - perfect for scones!

These scones are very easy to prepare; the method used is similar to my other scone recipes on this blog.  For this particular recipe, it is important to use frozen blackberries, because blackberries are really juicy and if not frozen, they will “leak” juice all over the scones while mixing and baking.  Here’s how to make them (there’s a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post):

How To Make Blackberry Scones

First, preheat your oven to 400° F.  In a large bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, baking powder and salt.  Cut up COLD butter into small chunks and add to flour mixture.

Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour until the butter has been reduced to the size of small peas.  You can also do this in a food processor, if desired.  Add sugar to the bowl, and stir to combine. Set this mixture aside.

Cutting butter into flour to make scone dough

In a separate bowl, add heavy whipping cream, eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk together until blended.  Set aside.

Whipping cream, eggs and vanilla mixed for scone dough

Add frozen blackberries to flour mixture. Toss gently to lightly coat the berries with flour.

Frozen blackberries added to scone dough mixture

Pour the whisked whipping cream/egg mixture into the flour mixture.  Stir gently to mix. Please note that the frozen berries will begin to thaw very quickly, so do this step quickly, but gently.  Your dough will be fairly sticky.

Whipping cream, egg and vanilla added to dry scone mixture

Shape And Cut The Scones

Once mixed, place the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough VERY LIGHTLY 3-4 times to ensure the dough comes together in a ball.  Shape dough into an 8 inch circle using your clean hands.

The dough should be about 1½ inches high.  Cut the blackberry scones into 8 wedges with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. I use a pizza cutter- easy, and works like a charm!

Bake The Blackberry Scones

Place the scones onto an ungreased baking sheet in a circle.  I leave a little space between each wedge. If desired, sprinkle tops with sugar (optional).

Bake the scones in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-22 minutes. They are done when the tops are light golden brown in color and they are “set” in the middle.

Time To Eat Some Blackberry Scones!

When the blackberry scones have finished baking, let them cool on the baking sheet for several minutes. Once cooled, separate them and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.  That’s it!

I hope you enjoy these tasty blackberry scones for breakfast, or for an afternoon treat with some tea, coffee, or a big cold glass of milk! They are delicious!

Thanks for taking time to look at this recipe!  I am thankful to Roberta Reynolds for this delicious recipe, and hope you give it a try (and give my other scone recipes a look, too!). Have a wonderful day, friends… be kind and encouraging to others out there in the big ol’ world. It can really make a positive difference in someones day!

Lemon Cream Scones

My sister told me about a delicious scone recipe she recently tried. Turns out it was the same recipe I had saved on Pinterest several months before and wanted to try, so I did!  Wow – I was really glad I made them… these Lemon Cream Scones are fantastic!

The lemon cream scones taste amazing! They are NOT dry (thankfully!), and get their delicious flavor from lemon zest IN the scones, and a lemon flavored glaze ON TOP!  They are very easy to make, in about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Other Scone Recipes On This Blog – I LOVE Scones!

Do YOU love scones? We sure do, in our home! They’re very easy to make, and cost so much less to make at home than buying from the local coffee hangout. Nothing better than a hot cup of coffee and a wonderful tasting scone! YUM.

I’ve published recipes for quite a few, including Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Chip, White Chocolate Raspberry, Blackberry, Banana Nut, Chocolate Chip Orange, Gingerbread, and Cranberry Orange.

How To Make Lemon Cream Scones

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Mix together the sugar and lemon zest in a medium sized mixing bowl.

Stir the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the sugar/lemon zest mixture until well combined.

Lemon zest and sugar are mixed together
Grate a cube of butter that has been frozen (freeze for 15 minutes before starting) directly into the bowl with the flour, etc..  Use a pastry blender to mix until the flour mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

TIP: If you don’t own a hand held pastry blender, two forks can be used. The grated frozen butter looks a LOT like grated cheese, right?

Frozen butter is grated into dry ingredients in bowl

Once the dough mixture is the size of coarse crumbs, mix an egg and heavy whipping cream together in a separate bowl.

Add The Wet Ingredients To The Dry Ingredients

When it is fully blended, pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, and stir until ingredients are combined. This may take a minute or two. Just keep at it, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go, to incorporate all the crumbles.

Egg and whipping cream are added to scone dough ingredients

Scone dough is fully mixed together in a bowl.

Shape The Dough To Make The Lemon Cream Scones

Shape the lemon cream scones dough with your hands into a round ball. I did this in the same bowl I mixed the dough in. Once the dough ball is formed, place it onto a lightly floured work surface.

Roll the dough for the scones out into a 7 inch circle (dough will be about 3/4 inch tall). Cut it into 8 wedges. You can use a pizza cutter to make smooth even cuts, but a sharp knife works just as well.

Can you see the little pieces of lemon zest in the dough? That adds great citrus FLAVOR to the yummy scones!

Bake The Lemon Cream Scones

Place the wedges onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Leave a bit of space between each wedge.

Bake the lemon cream scones in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove scones from oven, once done. The scones should be a light golden brown in color.

Let the lemon cream scones cool for a moment, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Prepare The Lemon Glaze

While cooling, prepare the lemon glaze in a small bowl, by mixing together powdered sugar, fresh squeezed lemon juice, melted butter and vanilla extract until smooth.

Glaze The Scones

Once scones have cooled a bit, brush the lemon glaze over the top of each one. Use ALL the glaze!

HELPFUL TIP: If you put a piece of foil or wax paper UNDER the rack, you will catch any glaze that drips off the scones (for easy cleanup!).

Lemon glaze added to scones on wire rack with a pastry brush

Let a bit of the glaze run down the sides of the scones. YUM!  Once all the glaze has been distributed, let the scones rest a few minutes in order to let the lemon glaze firm up.

Once the lemon glaze hardens, they are good to go! Don’t these lemon cream scones look GOOD? Wait until you taste them!

  2. Mix sugar and lemon zest together in medium bowl. Stir flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into mixture until combined.
  3. Grate a frozen cube of butter into flour mixture (use large holes on a box grater). Use a pastry blender (or two forks) to cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In separate bowl, mix one egg and heavy whipping cream together. Once blended, pour it into flour mixture; stir until ingredients are combined. Scrape down sides of the bowl to incorporate crumbles.
  5. Shape the dough with your hands into a round ball (I did this in the same bowl I mixed the dough in). Once dough ball is formed, place it on a lightly floured work surface. Roll dough out into a 7 inch circle (about 3/4 inch tall). Cut it into 8 wedges (I use a pizza cutter to make smooth even cuts, but a sharp knife works just as well!).
  6. Place the wedges onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Leave a space between each wedge. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then remove. Scones should be slightly golden brown.
  7. Let scones cool for a moment, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. While cooling, make lemon glaze by mixing together powdered sugar, lemon juice, melted butter and vanilla until smooth.
  8. Once scones are completely cooled, brush lemon glaze over the top of each one. Use ALL the glaze! For easy clean up, put a piece of foil or wax paper UNDER rack to catch any glaze that drips.
  9. Once all glaze has been used, let scones sit for a few minutes, until lemon glaze firms up. Enjoy!

Gingerbread Scones

Gingerbread Scones flavored with cinnamon and molasses and drizzled with vanilla glaze are a delicious family treat during the holidays or any time!Gingerbread Scones flavored with cinnamon and molasses and drizzled with vanilla glaze are a delicious family treat during the holidays or any time!
I made Gingerbread Scones recently (trying a new recipe). If you know me, you KNOW I love a good scone. It felt weird… like it “should” be Christmas time when I made them, but it was 90+ degrees outside and the middle of summer! Who cares if it’s hot or cold outside… when you’ve got a tasty breakfast treat in one hand and a mug of coffee in the other!

We Sure Do Enjoy Our Scones

Do YOU enjoy a good scone?  If you like scones (that aren’t dry and crumble like sawdust), then I hope you will check out my Recipe Index for all my other delicious scone recipes.

I’ve posted the recipes for Cinnamon Chip Scones, Cranberry Orange Scones, and Banana Nut Scones, to name a few. Here’s a photo of just some of the delicious scones you can find on this blog.

A picture collage of some of the scones on this blog.

How To Make Gingerbread Scones

Place flour, brown sugar, ginger, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in mixing bowl. Cut in the COLD butter with a pastry blender (or two forks), until the mixture is the size of small peas.

Cold butter is cut into dry ingredients for gingerbread scones, with a pastry cutter.
Mix together the molasses, egg yolk, and milk in a small bowl, until combined.

Molasses, egg yolk and milk are combined for gingerbread scones batter.
Pour the molasses mixture into the flour mixture. Stir until dough is moistened and has come together.

Molasses mixture is poured into dry ingredients for gingerbread scone batter.

The mixture will be slightly crumbly. Place the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough 6-7 times, incorporating the crumbles into dough, and it forms a solid ball.

The dough for gingerbread scones is very crumbly.

Pat or roll the dough ball out into an 8 inch circle, then slice evenly into 8 pieces.

The dough for gingerbread scones is rolled into 8 inch circle.

Gingerbread scones dough is cut into 8 wedges before baking.

Put the gingerbread scones onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet; keep them about an inch apart from each other. Whisk an egg white until it becomes frothy.

Using a pastry brush, evenly brush the egg white over the top of each scone wedge. Sprinkle the top of each scone with coarse sugar (I used raw sugar).

Egg whites are brushed onto tops of gingerbread scones before baking.

Bake The Gingerbread Scones

Bake the gingerbread scones in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Mine took the entire 15 minutes to turn golden brown.

When done, remove baking sheet from oven. Transfer the scones to a wire rack (including the parchment paper). Let cool.

I moved the scones near our open kitchen window to cool in the morning air. See the raw sugar glistening on the top of the scones?

It’s not necessary to garnish the scones once they’ve cooled off, but I wanted to add a bit of pretty icing to each one to make them look even better!  To do this, simply mix up powdered sugar, water, and a bit of cinnamon into a glaze-like consistency.

Pour the glaze into a squeeze bottle (you can also use a resealable bag, then snip a little corner off the bottom) and decorate the scones with the icing.

Gingerbread scones are decorated with a vanilla glaze on top.
Let the glaze firm up just a bit, and then the gingerbread scones are all done! Ready to eat… so where’s my huge mug of coffee?

Hope you will consider trying this recipe! It certainly doesn’t have to be the Holiday season to enjoy a good scone now, does it?  Have a fantastic day!

Ingredients
For Scones:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup COLD butter (1/2 a cube)
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg , separated
  • Coarse sugar (for dusting tops of scones prior to baking)
For Icing (to decorate scones)
  • Powdered Sugar (approx. 1 cup)
  • Few dribbles of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In medium bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda, ginger, salt and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender (or two forks), cut in COLD butter until mixture is about the size of small peas.
  2. In separate bowl, combine molasses, milk and egg yolk until fully mixed. Pour this into the dry ingredients in other bowl. Stir until just moistened. (Mixture was fairly crumbly. I added just a smidge more milk).
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, then knead dough about 7-8 times. Shape dough into an 8 inch circle (using your hands). Using a sharp knife, cut into 8 equal sized pieces.
  4. Place scones onto a greased (or parchment paper covered) baking sheet. Place the dough wedges about an inch apart (but still in a circle shape).
  5. In a small dish, beat the egg white until it is frothy. Brush the egg white over the top of each scone using a pastry brush. Sprinkle scones with coarse sugar.
  6. Bake scones in preheated 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are light, golden brown in color. When done, remove to wire rack. Let cool.
  7. To add decorative icing to the scones, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a teaspoon of water. Stir well. Continue to add a couple drops of water at a time until you have an icing that is "drizzle-able" (not too thick... not too thin). Place icing into a plastic squeeze bottle and decoratively drizzle over cooled scones OR place icing into a resealable plastic storage bag, snip a little piece off the bottom corner, and decorate.

Cranberry-Orange Scones

Cranberry Orange Scones, with a sweet citrus glaze, are a perfect breakfast treat or snack! They’re delicious, and the easy recipe makes 8 scones!Cranberry Orange Scones, with a sweet citrus glaze, are a perfect breakfast treat or snack! They're delicious, and the easy recipe makes 8 scones!
One of my flavor combinations is that of oranges and cranberries. That flavor combo has been a favorite of mine for years, which is why I LOVE these cranberry orange scones!

That same flavor combo enhances these amazing, absolutely yummy Cranberry-Orange Scones! I’ve been making these for years and years, and absolutely LOVE them!

Making Scones From Scratch Will Save You Money

I love making scones, because they are a wonderful breakfast treat or afternoon snack, especially with a good cup of coffee or tea. Scones are made often in our home, because they are so delicious, quick, and easy to prepare.

By making cranberry orange scones at home, I can save lots of money by NOT buying them at a coffee house. Have you seen how much ONE scone costs nowadays?

This recipe makes 8 scones, and is budget friendly. The cranberry orange scones freeze well, so you can have one any time you want, for a fraction of the cost of BUYING 8 scones!

By making them at home from scratch, I also can know exactly what is in them! THAT is another winning combination, in my humble opinion!

Process For Making Scones

If you would like to see pictures of the “process” of how to make scones, I would invite you to view my post for Chocolate Chip Orange Scones, which I posted last year, for pictures of the “how-to’s”.

It is very detailed and will show you how simple it is to make scones, step by step! Follow the pictures for the process, and you’ll be a master scone baker, making these delicious cranberry orange scones in NO time!

This recipe for Cranberry-Orange Scones is very similar, and follows the same process. I simply didn’t take any pictures (except the finished product) while making this particular scone.

Calories Per Serving: 395 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
For Scones:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 cube) unsalted butter, very cold
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel (finely grated; I use a micro-plane zester)
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 egg white + 1/2 tsp. water
For Glaze:
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (can always add more if you need extra)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract (I use it for enhanced flavor, but optional)
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 3-4 teaspoons orange juice (to make glaze painting consistency)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In a food processor (or cut in by hand with a pastry blender in a large bowl), mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and chilled butter together until well combined.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, orange juice, vanilla, and grated orange peel. Add egg mixture to the flour mixture; combine till fully blended. Stir in dried cranberries until fully incorporated into dough.

  3. Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough with floured hands until the dough comes together...(continue to sprinkle the dough and surface with additional flour as needed, as dough is usually fairly "sticky"-I usually do this 3-4 times).

  4. Shape dough into an 8" circle with your hands. Using a pizza cutter or very sharp knife, cut the scones into 8 equal-sized wedges.  Mix the egg white and water together in small bowl. Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the scones with this mixture.

  5. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place wedges on baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes (mine are usually ready at the 20 minute mark), or until golden brown on top. When done, remove scones from oven to a wire rack, with foil or parchment paper underneath.

  6. When scones have cooled, "paint" the glaze on with a pastry brush (glaze is made by mixing up the ingredients listed, in a small bowl). Completely cover the tops of the scones with the glaze. Let scones cool until glaze has hardened. ENJOY!

Do you like the flavor of cinnamon? Do you like to eat scones? Want to make fantastic tasting Cinnamon Chip Scones for breakfast or to snack on any other time???  Well, look no further, because this is the most delicious scone recipe you will ever want!

I’m so happy to share this recipe for amazing tasting cinnamon chip scones. They are soooo yummy!I recently bought a bag of cinnamon chips at the grocery store. Sometimes the chips are seasonal (not in stores), but they can be ordered on Amazon.

I’d never bought this kind of baking chip before, but remembered seeing a scone recipe that used cinnamon chips, featured on Taste of Home, thought they sounded delicious, so decided to give it a try.

My husband said after tasting one that before he tried one he wasn’t sure he was going to like them, but after tasting one (or two ☺) decided they are awesome!

I sure hope you will give these cinnamon chip scones a try. WAY LESS EXPENSIVE than paying for the same quantity at your local coffeehouse…really! And they are absolutely EASY AND DELICIOUS!

How To Make Cinnamon Chip Scones

First, add the cold butter to the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Chunks of cold butter are added to dry ingredients for cinnamon chip scones.

Blueberry Scones With Lemon Glaze

Blueberry scones, studded with plump juicy blueberries, and topped with a tangy sweet lemon glaze, are sure to be a hit for breakfast or snack time!Blueberry scones, studded with plump juicy blueberries, and topped with a tangy sweet lemon glaze, are sure to be a hit for breakfast or snack time!

I love to make and serve scones, including these Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze! A great tasting homemade scone is, in my humble opinion, a lovely little bite of “goodness”, when served with a good strong cup of coffee or tea on the side!

Do you like blueberries? We sure do! Every summer I pick blueberries at a local berry farm. I even have a couple blueberry bushes in my backyard that add to the haul!

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

I like to pick a lot of blueberries (usually about 15-20 pounds) to freeze and enjoy all year long. Then, when I see a great recipe (like this one for blueberry scones) using this delicious fruit, I just raid my freezer. It’s pretty convenient!

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze / The Grateful Girl Cooks!
I found this particular recipe for blueberry scones online.  The original recipe for the scones was from Tyler Florence (a Food Network star), then adapted a bit by the author of the website I found. I even tweaked it a bit more (as far as cutting/forming technique), and have to say I was not disappointed!
I think the flavor combination of lemons and blueberries is “practically perfect in every way”, to quote my friend, Mary Poppins! **OKAY, okay, maybe she is not a close friend, but I can still quote her, right? Delicious!

I didn’t get any pictures of the process of making this particular batch of blueberry scones (my bad). However, you might like this link to my Chocolate Chip Orange Scones recipe that shows (in pictures) the process I typically use to make scones. It might be helpful to you, if you’ve never made scones before.

Close up photo of the blueberry scones.

I hope you will try making these delicious blueberry scones with lemon glaze, and trust you enjoy them as much as we did! Have a great day.

Calories Per Serving: 369 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
For the scones:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons butter , very cold and cut into small chunks
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
For the lemon glaze:
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar (powdered), sifted
  • 1/2 Tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (I use a micro-plane zester)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. (If using a food processor, add the sifted dry ingredients to the processor and pulse in the chunks of cold butter.) If mixing by hand, cut in the butter using a pastry blender, then follow rest of directions.
  3. Pour the heavy cream into and pulse in food processor 2-3 times (or stir if making by hand) until cream has been fully incorporated. If the dough appears to be a bit dry, add and extra 2-3 Tablespoons of whipping cream or cold water. Make sure you don't overwork the dough.
  4. Remove the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Sprinkle and lightly press in the blueberries, folding the dough over itself. Once blueberries have been added, form the dough into a 8-9 inch circle.
  5. Cut the dough circle into 8 wedges. Place the cut scones onto an ungreased baking sheet (Just re-form the circle, but leave about 1/2 in between each wedge). Using a pastry brush, brush a slight bit of whipping cream over the entire top of the scone. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  6. While scones are cooling, mix up the lemon glaze. To do this: Mix the lemon juice and powdered sugar in a small microwave safe bowl until sugar has dissolved. Add in the lemon zest and the butter. Microwave this for approximately 30 seconds, then whisk again until smooth. Brush the glaze all over the tops of the scones, and let cool so the icing will firm up. Grab one... and a cup of coffee, and enjoy!

Ingredients
For Scones:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup COLD butter
  • 1 large apple , peeled and chopped (I use Granny Smith...nice and firm!)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
For Topping:
  • 2 Tablespoons rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon Turbinado sugar (if you do not have this, substitute granulated sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
For Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 teaspoons warm water (or till thin enough for "drizzling" tops of cooked scones
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. (You can also use a food processor for this, if desired)
  3. Cut in the COLD butter with a pastry blender (or pulse until cut into small crumbs in a food processor).
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, honey and apple. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients; mix until blended.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough gently until all ingredients are combined. (You might want to lightly flour your hands) Form the dough into an 8-9 inch circle and about 3/4 inch thickness. Slice into 8 wedges. Carefully put the wedges onto prepared baking sheet (keep them in a circle, but leave about 3/4 inch between each wedge).
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients, EXCEPT FOR THE MILK.
  7. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush and cover the tops of each scone with the milk.
  8. Sprinkle each scone with the topping ingredients evenly till all of the mixture has been distributed.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes (or until golden brown). Remove scones from oven and let them cool on a wire rack. Mix glaze ingredients and decoratively drizzle glaze over tops of scones when cool. Serve... and enjoy!

White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

White chocolate raspberry scones are delicious, easy to make treats, filled with white chocolate chips and raspberries, and topped with a sweet glaze.White chocolate raspberry scones are delicious, easy to make treats, filled with white chocolate chips and raspberries, and topped with a sweet glaze.
It’s definitely a day for decadent White Chocolate Raspberry Scones and humongous cups of coffee. I’m sitting in my home office looking out at a forest filled with snow, and it has begun snowing again. We are on Day 3 of what Portland locals call “Snowpacalypse 2014”. Tonight we are expecting a coating of ice on top of it all. Yippee.

When Sick AND Snowbound, Scones Are A GOOD Idea!

My husband and I both have been sick (we’re on Day 4-ugh), so we’re content to be house-bound and off the slippery streets. However, there’s only so much napping and taking medicine that one girl can take, so off to the kitchen I went yesterday to find something to bake.

I ended up trying a new recipe for white chocolate raspberry scones. I mean- if you’re going to be sick and snowbound…make sure you have treats, right?

Yay For New Scone Recipes!

I found the original recipe on Pinterest and tweaked it just a bit, and voila! A new, tasty recipe for a delicious scone! I had raspberries in my freezer that I picked this past summer, and happened to have a bag of white chocolate chips left over from Christmas baking. How convenient…it must be DESTINY…Perfect!

The recipe was very easy, although my kitchen work surface did look like a murder scene (blasted raspberries) when I was done, but no big deal! It just made it a bit more exciting! Hope you enjoy these tasty white chocolate raspberry scones!

How To Make White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

Cut the butter into the flour. I use a food processor to do this simple step, but you can also use a pastry blender by hand. When done, the butter should be about the size of peas.

Butter is cut into the scones dough until it is in small pieces.

Add the white chocolate chips and raspberries to the scones dough. Can you tell my raspberries were still frozen?

A Murder Scene, Perhaps? Nope… Just Some Scones!

The top of the white chocolate raspberry scones dough looks like a murder scene. Ha Ha! Roll the scone dough out into a circle, then slice it into 8 pie-shaped wedges.

The raspberry scones dough has been sliced and they are now ready to bake.

Bake And Then Glaze The White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

Bake the scones. The photo below shows how the white chocolate raspberry scones looked right when they came out of the oven.

Making the glaze is done by simply mixing powdered sugar, vanilla and warm water together. The glaze can be made while the scones cool. Once cooled, drizzle the glaze over them! After the glaze firms up, they are ready to eat!

The white chocolate raspberry scones have baked, and cool before being drizzled with glaze.

These scones look pretty good, and boy, do they ever taste good, too! Pretty sure you will really enjoy this decadent treat! Now it’s time to eat one of these delicious scones!

Hope you enjoy these delicious white chocolate raspberry scones. We sure did, even while sick, and snowed in! Have a GREAT day!

Category: Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: white chocolate raspberry scones
Servings: 8 servings
Calories Per Serving: 435 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
For Scone Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons cold butter , cut into pieces
  • 6 oz. raspberries (fresh or frozen will work-I mixed mine in while still frozen)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk (or heavy cream-I used milk)
For Glaze Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar (powdered)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-4 teaspoons warm water (to get glaze to correct "painting" consistency)
For White Chocolate Drizzle:
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips + 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening- melted (microwave 30 seconds, stir, microwave 20 seconds stir.-don't let them burn!)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor (or in a large bowl if making them by hand), combine all of the dry ingredients. Add the cold chunks of butter to the processor and pulse to cut in butter (or cut in by hand with a pastry cutter).
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, milk (or heavy cream), and the vanilla; Mix these ingredients together, till well blended.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and pulse till the dough comes together into a dough ball (If mixing by hand, stir and stir till you have a cohesive dough ball).
  5. Turn the dough ball onto a floured work surface (or into a large bowl) and GENTLY mix in the white chocolate chips and the raspberries by hand (might want to flour your hands) till blended. Note: Don't worry if it looks like a murder occurred at this point...it will all be okay. Really.
  6. With floured hands (sprinkle a bit more flour on dough if necessary, cause the dough is sticky), gently form the dough ball into a round "disc" approximately 8 inches across.
  7. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter (my weapon of choice!), cut the disc into 8 scones.
  8. Gently pick up each scone and re-arrange them in a circle on the prepared baking sheet, with a bit of space between each one.
  9. Bake the scones at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes (mine were ready at the 25 minute mark-just keep an eye on them). Bake till golden brown.
  10. When done, remove from baking sheet to a wire rack, with parchment or foil underneath (to catch any drips from glaze icing). Let cool.
  11. While cooling, mix up the glaze ingredients. Once scones are completely cooled off, "paint" the icing over the tops of the scones, completely covering the surface; when that glaze hardens add the white chocolate drizzle in a decorative pattern. ENJOY!
