A friend and I were talking about raspberry scones-we looked at this recipe but can't find the chocolate. Am I missing it or is it chocolate chips???;
Raspberry Scones

Home Cookin 4.8 Chapter: Recipes From Thibeault's Table

Raspberry Scones ================

2 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 6 Tbsp. cold butter, 1 cup heavy cream, 3/4 cup fresh raspberries, extra cream and sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into mixture with pastry blender until it resembles a course meal. Add cream and raspberries to dry ingredients. Mix lightly with fork until mixture forms a stiff dough. Knead on floured board just to incorporate all flour; try not to damage berries.

Roll into 7-inch round and cut into 6 or 8 wedges. Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheet; brush tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.

Note: When adding fruit to the scone mixture, make sure the raspberries or blueberries are frozen. Otherwise you end up with crushed fruit. Still tastes as good, but not as pretty. I usually add the cream and when the dough has almost come together I add the frozen fruit. With the Chocolate you can add it along with the cream.

It's not the chocolate chips. There is another recipe, or rather, you have only a portion of Ann T's recipe. She has a recipe variation for chocolate scones or biscuits which she has used for strawberry shortcake.

I was sure I had saved it, but I can't find it. It may have been one of those items lost in the "Great Computer Crash".

Hopefully Ann T will see this and post the recipe again because it was on my "to try" list and I haven't tried it.

Roselin I have the Raspberry Scone recipe saved and it doesn't include the last sentence. Maybe Ann was cutting and pasting.....just scratch the last line.

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

Roselin, That last sentence about the Chocolate was added at one time in response to someone asking about adding white chocolate to the scones.

Oh, that is too bad-thought that chocolate scones with raspberries would be great. Kathy and I will have to see what we can come up with for a meeting we are hostessing.
Thanks all.

What's too bad? Chocolate and Raspberries are wonderful in Scones.

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

I realize that chocolate and raspberries are an excellent combintation, I was thinking more along the line of chocolate flavored scones (with chocolate in the batter) and the raspberries as opposed to chocolate chips-white or chocolate.

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

Ann, am I hallucinating or did you actually have a recipe for chocolate shortcakes to be served with strawberries? I was certain I had saved one, but now I can't find it.

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

No you aren't hallucinating Annie. These chocolate shortcakes are a favourite of Moe's.

Thank you, Ann. I was ALMOST sure that I knew what I was talking about but the memory is first to go. I think. I can't really remember. LOL

This time I'm SAVING it. Sheesh.

Roselin, I'll bet you could make a chocolate raspberry scone out of these, with maybe just a few adjustments....

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

roselin--do give those chocolate biscuits/shortcakes of Ann T's a try---I made them last year during strawberry season & they are melt in your mouth good--just stir in frozen raspberries.

A friend in Wales is sending me a recipe I want to try.
Thanks anyhow.

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

A friend sent me to the Joy of Baking website and there is the chocolate scones recipe. Will just add some raspberries and see what a treat we have.

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

I went to the Joy of Cooking site and check out the recipe. All the ingredients in the chocolate scones are also in Ann T's recipe, in fact they look startlingly similar, except Ann T's recipe makes a larger batch (more whipping cream, more flour, etc). Ann T's also adds chocolate chips instead of just cocoa.

All in all, it looks like pretty much the same recipe, with slight differences in the amounts of ingredients. I assume raspberries could take the place of chocolate chips pretty easily.

Hey Ros, how did those scones turn out?

I was looking for a scones thread to share with someone, but I think I'll pass on this one.


 o
RE: LOOKING for: Scones

IS THIS IT???????


 o
RE: LOOKING for: Scones

We adore Ann's Scones both her "plain" and the chocolate..But Now I make "plain" with just adding chocolate chips for my Kamren. He liked the Chocolate Chips in the chocolate ones, but it was to chocolatey for him..so He asked me to make them look like chocolate chip cookies..
So I use the Raspberry Scone recipe, but mix in chocolate chips.

And I always make the raspberry ones with the addition of finely cubed white chocolate. (Those are hubbies favorite!)

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

Terri, what kind of white chocolate do you use? I think the last time I bought some - a fairly good brand I think...I still didn't feel they were as rich (chocolate rich) as I'm used to in a cookie. Maureen

RE: LOOKING for: Scones

Maureen, I'm not sure what brand of white chocolate that Terri uses, but I use Bernard Callebaut white chocolate. I buy it in chunks and chop it up myself.
