Soft, tender, and bursting with flavor, these White Chocolate Raspberry Scones are sure to be a hit for breakfast or brunch!

I just love baking with (and eating) fresh raspberries. Raspberry sweet rolls, chocolate chip raspberry banana bread, and raspberry bundt cake are a few more of my favorites!

I am a huge fan of raspberries. I could eat them by the bowl full. We eat them so fast at my house that they don’t often make it into my baked goods. But I had been wanting to try raspberry scones for ages, so this time I came up with a plan.

I whipped up a batch as soon as I got home from the grocery store — before anyone even knew we had raspberries. Sometimes you gotta be sneaky!

We loved the combination of the tartness of the raspberries with the sweetness of the white chocolate. And of course the scones are nice and buttery. I adore the flavor from the almond extract, it is a perfect compliment to the raspberries.

You can of course use vanilla instead, but the flavor won’t be quite the same. Either way though, these scones are just amazing!!

If you’ve never made scones before, don’t be scared. They are seriously so easy to make. As long as you don’t overwork the dough, they turn out great.

Don’t be intimidated by the process of cutting in the butter. A good quality  pastry cutter makes it easier, but if you don’t have one, you can just use a grater to grate in the butter. Either method will produce great results!

How to make White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl, then cut or grate in the butter. Stir in some white chocolate chips. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Add to the flour mixture and mix very gently. Carefully fold in the fresh raspberries.

Divide dough in half and pat each portion into a circle. Cut into wedges and place on cookie sheets. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes. Melt a little white chocolate and drizzle over the scones. (I like to place mine in a ziplock bag and snip the corner to drizzle. So much easier!)

Can raspberry scones be made ahead?

Yes, they can! After you cut the dough, you can place the unbaked scones on a single layer and freeze for about 1 1/2 hours. Then remove the frozen dough scones and place in airtight containers. You can bake them frozen, you just need to add more baking time. It may take up to 30 minutes.

You can also bake the scones and freeze them in an airtight container. If you choose this method, I recommend freezing them before you add the melted chocolate. Let them thaw before you drizzle them with glaze. Or you can just omit the glaze, they are plenty tasty without it!

  • 2 cups fresh raspberries

  1. JoAnn H Looby says

    Good Morning,
    Can this recipe be easily halfed?

  2. These were amazing. A little to moist my first try, next try was great. I also made them with blueberries and lemon extract instead of the almond. Wow!

  3. Susan Heidel Lacy says

    I have mad these twice now. Both times they were delicious but not pretty. They completely lost their shape. The last time I even refrigerated them for 30 mins before baking. Still they spread. The dough was pretty wet, is that normal. I love the flavor, I just wish I could fix the shape problem. Any suggestions?

    • I haven’t had that happen with these scones, but I’ve had others that have lost their shape. Usually it’s because the dough is too wet, so you could try using a bit less milk or cream. The dough should stick together, but not be sticky. Good luck!

  4. If you have a treenut allergy (like me), replace the almond extract with 1/2 tsp of lemon extract. (1 tsp if you REALLY like lemon flavoring.) It gives a nice hint of sweetness.

  5. I just made these with frozen raspberries, I coated them in a little flour and folded them in at the last minute, just a couple folds. They turned out great! No red dough!

  6. I made these at Easter but with blueberries as my local super market didn’t have fresh raspberries at the time. My family LOVED them. Going to try making more with gluten free flower this time for a friend

  7. Kara, this sounds so good! Was wondering if it would work with other types of berries?

  8. Diane Welsh says

    Should you eat these warm or cold? Ive never made scones before? and if warm can you make them and heat them? Are they as good warmed up, what temperature would you reheat on?

    • I like them warm, so if we have leftovers I just heat them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds. But my kids will just eat them at room temperature.

  9. This recipe calls for 1/2 cup cream … whipping cream?

  10. These are delicious! Light and fluffy and delicious! I love the combination of almond extract with vanilla! I will make them again and again!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  11. I tried this recipe with frozen raspberries and it was a red mess. What can I do to avoid that next time?

  12. Carla Dicke says

    Can the scones be frozen? Trying to prepare for lots of out of town visitors for Christmas and my boys love scones.

  13. Hi my name is Benjiman I am 15 I hope to be a navy chef anf uhhh my family LOVED these even though they were my first try . Soo Thanks !

  14. Joan Brune says

    These are the best. I have made them several times. I did add some chopped almonds because I only had 1/4 cup and wanted to store new ones in the jar. Delish.

  15. Using blackberries this time. This is the best scone recipe!

  16. DELICIOUS!!! My kids loved these. thanks for the easy and delicious recipe.

  17. All purpose flour or self rising flour?

  18. Jessica Posey says

    I made them with diced mangos and they came out fantastic. In the process of brainstorming some other flavor combinations. I agree on being mindful of your liquids especially depending on the fruit used.

  19. I added some sliced almonds…wow, these are fantastic!

  20. These are wonderful. Even my dogs; Angelina and Joli loved them. And they turn down anything that’s not meat. 😂 Now they can join me for High Tea.

  21. YES!, or in a pinch, you can use 1/2 & 1/2; However, it won’t be as good if you used the heavy cream. Too, I use, Ghirardelli Premium Baking Bar-White Chocolate. Then, using a sharp knife, chop-it-up, into chunks: some small, some mid-size, some bigger than mid-size. Be sure to also use the “fines”.

  22. Tammy Eckel says

    These are the best scones I have ever made! Be careful with your liquids, the raspberries will add some. Scrumptious!

  23. mary tauber says

    what has happened? I used to print your recipes but this one won’t. Hatd to write it down but I am going to try it tonight with blueberries.

  24. Cassandra says

    Best scones ever

  25. Victoria says

    Does this make a full size or mini scone? Trying to plan for about 30 people for a brunch and mini scones would be ideal.

    • This makes 16 regular sized scones. You can cut them smaller and they will work just fine. They will bake faster, so just make sure you watch them closely!

  26. Those scones look delicious!! I love anything with white chocolate!!

  27. My boys love scones!! These look incredible and I can’t wait to make them! Pinned!

  28. These look absolutely delicious!

  29. These look so delicious! I’ve never had raspberries in scones before, but now I’ve gotta make some!

    • I hadn’t ever tried raspberries before either, but I’ll be making them again for sure. Such a yummy flavor combo!
