Introduction

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour. Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 eggs, beaten
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup evaporated nonfat milk
    zest of 1 lemon
    3 cups white whole wheat flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 cups frozen raspberries





Tips

Sprinkle a tablespoon of raw sugar on top of the scones for added crunch and sweetness.


Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter in a mixing bowl for 3 minutes. Slowly add the sugar and mix for 2 more minutes. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure all the sugar and butter have mixed thoroughly.

Mix in the eggs, then add the vanilla, evaporated milk, and lemon zest.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until combined. Gently stir in the raspberries.

Turn the dough onto the lined baking pan. Form into an 8-inch circle and cut into 12 equal wedges or biscuits. Separate the wedges/biscuits and allow 1/2 inch space between each one.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until the tops are lightly browned.

Enjoy warm or cooled.


Serving Size: Makes 12 scones.

    WHITE whole wheat flour? Isn't that just regular flour in the end? If it is the whole grain of wheat, it can't be white, can it?
    I'll definitely make these, but will stick to natural whole wheat flour.

    White whole wheat flour is a variety of whole wheat made from a lighter-colored wheat. It looks like white flour but has all the nutrition of whole wheat flour. It has a slightly lighter texture than regular whole wheat flour, you could certainly sub that.

    Just a comment to expound on the white whole wheat flour...the more 'common' whole wheat flour is produced from wheat known as "hard red wheat'. There are two other kinds often seen...a hard white & a soft white. The hard is great for breads and less bitter or strong tasting than the red. - 6/19/12

    Great recipe! I did use 1/2 C less of flour and tried the tip of "sugar in the raw" on the top of the scones. I sprinkled it on the scones just before they finished baking, turned the oven off and left the door open to "set" the sugar for 10 minutes. - 8/17/12

    RE: LEMON ZEST is finely shredded lemon peel, or rind. You can use what is called a "ZESTER," a fine bladed grater, or a knife (holding the knife away from you and working down the skin of a whole washed lemon.) You only want to bright yellow outer skin, and NOT the white pith inside. - 5/11/12

    These sound delicious, but it bothers me when I see recipes that increase the # of servings thereby DECREASING serving size just to keep calorie counts down (still too high for such a small scone & photo definitely doesn't reflect actual size) Recipe should have made 8 scones (270 kcal; 8g fat). - 5/5/13

    How could i use flaxseed in place of flour ? To many carbs for me, i can sub Splenda for sugar. Hope someone can help me i'd love to make them. - 5/11/12

    Reply from CHEF_MEG (6/4/12)
    You cannot sub flaxseed for flour. When mixed with liquids, flaxseed's soluble fiber becomes gummy and sticky. The flaxseed lacks gluten, which means the scones would not hold together. I recommend decreasing the portion size to reduce carbs.

    I had to add additional milk to get the right consistency...would recommend reducing the flour to 2 cups as others mentioned. Also using blueberries instead of raspberries would probably make them taste sweeter without adding additional sugar. The raspberries overpowered the lemon flavor. - 10/27/12

    my family loved these! they are y to make too. i decreased sugar to 1/4 c. and decreased flour to 2 c. as many others did. i didn't form them like scones, but just dropped them like cookie batter onto the baking sheet and they were delicious! want to try them next with blueberries and orange zest! - 5/7/13

    Thanks to others that commented. I used 2 cups of flour instead of 3. I also increased the evaporated milk as necessary to bind all the ingredients together. I also used blueberries instead and added a few squeeze of lemon juice. The scones turned out delicious. My husband loves them. - 12/14/12

    I used fresh blueberries instead of strawberries, and regular whole wheat flour since I didn't have white. They were very good, but there was a slight bitterness from the flour -- not sure if my flour had gone bad, or if I needed more sweetener, or if white whole wheat flour would fix the problem. - 2/8/13

    I love the white whole wheat flour and yes you might see reduced bitterness with the white whole wheat variety. Chef Meg

    I was attracted to this recipe because it said whole GRAIN flour. It's actually whole WHEAT flour. There's a difference. The whole GRAIN is using the hull and germ of the wheat berry which will spoil in a few days and needs to be milled fresh. Whole GRAIN flour is the healthy one. - 5/11/13

    I also added a little more milk because the dough wasn't all coming together properly. A splash of lemon juice instead of zest. Next time I think I'll reduce the flour some or add more milk still. Overall pretty good. - 5/9/13

    Never made scones before so I compromised and used 2-1/2 cups of white whole wheat flour. Batter was very thick; I got 8 scones. Used black raspberries because that's what I had in the freezer. Didn't look like the picture here, but very tasty. Will hone for an upcoming brunch. - 5/5/13

    I substituted frozen blueberries for the raspberries and only used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour. They turned out beautifully and so delicious!! Also moistened top of scones with skim milk and sprinkled small amount raw sugar crystals on top which gave them beautiful shine and taste. - 8/24/13

    To make these gluten free I subbed with 2 c. all purpose whole grain g/f flour, added 1/4 tsp. baking soda and 1/4 tsp. guar gum. I used unsweetened almond milk to replace the nonfat milk and only used one egg. Oven temp. and bake time stayed the same. Good! - 5/11/13

    Personally, I didn't like them at all, but my husband and son thought they were alright. Could've been some substitutions I made - I used half regular all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour since I couldn't find white whole wheat. Also used fresh berries. They were very "wheat"y. - 5/12/13

  • Seems like a lot of the reviews indicate everyone is modifying this recipe to make it work for taste, serving size and decreasing flour to get the butter flour ratio like a regular scone.
