Almond raspberry scones: How sweet Scotland is

Reading time: 1 minute

Scotland: wind, rain, sun, snow, and wind again. The weather on the coasts of Scotland has always been a bit indecisive. The landscape is just as unpredictable as the weather. The craggy and verdant green nature is an unforgettable experience for many hikers. Anyone looking for some nourishment and something to warm themself up, or who simply want to try a new delicacy after a long walk should try the pastry called scones. They can be sweet or salty. Today we will give you a sweet scones recipe.

 

Ingredients for 4 persons:

280 g flour

1 tsp. baking soda

3 tbsp. sugar

½ tsp. salt

90 g butter

215 g cream

125 g raspberries (fresh)

30 g flaked almonds

 

Put the flour, baking soda, sugar, salt and butter into a bowl and mix to a crumbly consistency. Then add the cream and raspberries, as well as the flaked almonds, and use a dough scraper to mix the dough until it binds.

Then place the dough on a surface sprinkled with flour and press together by hand – but don’t knead it!

Once the dough is round in shape, press it flat to a height of about 2 to 3 cm with a rolling pin. It should be about as big as a breakfast platter. Now quarter the round scone shapes with a knife and then cut the quarters again, until there are eight pieces.

Then place the scones into the oven at about 200 °C for 18 – 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. All done!

And if you can: a tumbler of Scotch tops off this taste experience perfectly.
