Raspberry and Dark Chocolate Scones

  • Is there a better blend of flavors? Raspberry and dark chocolate... delightful!

  • Raspberry and Dark Chocolate Scones

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

The easiest way to do this is in a food processor*. 
Put dry ingredients in food processor, whir slightly to mix. Cut butter into chunks and put in the food processor and whir until mixed and crumbly.
Beat egg and sour cream slightly and pour into food processor, whir and slowly drop in chocolate chips and frozen berries until dough forms a ball. 
Place on greased (or parchment paper) baking sheet and press into a circle, (making sure to press berries into dough) about 8 inches. With a sharp knife, cut into 8 pieces (pie/triangles). Bake 25** minutes at 400˚. 

*If you do not have a food processor, you can do this by hand. Cut the butter into chunks, add the dry ingredients (mixed slightly) and use a Pastry Blender or a Hand Mixer to mix until crumbly.
Beat egg and sour cream slightly and then add to butter/dry ingredients and mix in with a wooden spoon, or knead by hand. The warmer the dough gets, the stickier, so you could start with frozen/grated butter if you are going to use your hands.

**I do 25 minutes on my stone baking sheet, regular baking sheets will probably be a few minutes less.
Serve warm or completely cooled.

Ok, great combo of ingredients! Love raspberries and dark chocolate. Should the berries be frozen or can they be fresh from a garden. Sorry for the dumb question, clearly I don't do this too often. Thanks in advance for your answer.

I used frozen, you could freeze them first, if fresh are used they will tear up a little more.
