Scone Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter cold
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 32 raspberries

Lemon Glaze Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice


Scone Instructions

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Cut in small pieces of cold butter and mix with your hands until you can just see pea-sized pieces of butter.
  • In a separate bowl, mix eggs, sour cream, vanilla, and lemon zest.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients a little bit at a time until just combined - the batter will be lumpy.
  • Divide batter evenly between the sections of a greased scone pan. Or, press the batter into a thick circle onto a parchment- or silicone mat-lined cookie sheet and cut it into eight sections.
  • Place four raspberries on top of each uncooked scone.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the scones are browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.
  • Cool on a cooling rack.

Lemon Glaze Instructions

  • Stir the powdered sugar and lemon juice together in a small bowl until you have a thick but still flowy glaze. Add more powdered sugar or juice as needed.
  • Drizzle over cooled scones.


Using a scone pan yields perfectly uniform scones, while using a baking sheet results in  less uniform scones with crispier edges.
Scones are best eaten within a few days, but you can freeze them in an airtight container for months.
