How to Make Glazed Lemon Raspberry Scones

Preheat the oven to 350Β°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Β 

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and zest if using. Use a cheese grater to shred the cold butter and mix it in using a pastry blender.

Mixing the ingredients

Whisk the buttermilk, applesauce, honey, and lemon extract in a medium sized bowl. If you don’t have buttermilk, whisk three tablespoons of milk with a quarter teaspoon of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Set aside for five to ten minutes before using.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until the dough has come together, but do not over mix. If the dough is still very sticky, add some more flour. Gently fold in the raspberries.

 Turn out half of the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a circle, roughly six inches in diameter. Using a butter knife, cut the circle into eight portions. Place each scone on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Β Bake for about 15 minutes or until the scones turn slightly golden. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when they are ready. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool.

While the scones are cooling, prepare the glaze.Β In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, honey, milk, lemon extract, and zest. Add more sugar until the glaze reaches the desired consistency. I prefer having it a little thicker so that it doesn’t soak into the scones. When the they are cool, drizzle the glaze over the top with a fork.
