Lemon Raspberry Scones

I’m definitely a convert from the conventional plain scones to the sweet style of scones.  This is a really terrific recipe that is simple to make and quick to prepare.

This is a sweet scone that has a vibrant raspberry flavour mixed through which is offset by a lemon tang.  The Lemon glaze provides a wonderful sweet burst of flavour.  These scones are perfect for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack.

The raspberry mixed through the scone provides an appealing swirl of colour.  If you haven’t made sweet scones before, you should seriously consider making these.  They will become a firm favourite.

Serve these scones ‘as is’ and they are fantastic.  Add a dollop of cream if you want a more indulgent snack.
