R - Raspberry White Chocolate Scones with Devonshire Cream

A few years ago I went to a Tea House with the girls in my extended family. While there I had a delectable Raspberry White Chocolate Scone and couldn't get it off my mind. I came home and found this delicious recipe online.

Raspberry White Chocolate Scones


2 1/2 C flour
1/2 C sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 C butter or margarine, softened
1/3 C milk
1/3 C non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 egg
1 T. vanilla extract
2 C frozen raspberries
1 C white chocolate chips or chunks (I cut up Baker's White Chocolate bars)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet. Combine dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Work butter or margarine into dry ingredients, using a pastry blender or fork, until it is the size of small peas. Combine milk, yogurt, egg and vanilla in a small mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until the dry ingredients are moist. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spoon about 1/3 C of batter for each scone onto cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Serving: 1 dozen scones

Devonshire Cream


4 oz. mascarpone
1 C heavy whipping cream
1 t. vanilla extract
1-2 T. granulated sugar
zest of lemon or lime, optional (I left out)

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and beat until the mixture holds its shape and looks like softly whipped cream. Use right away or cover and refrigerate until serving time.

Serving: about 1 1/2 C
