Amaretto Raspberry Scone Recipe

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Here are two of my favorite flavors Amaretto and breakfast fruit combined, Amaretto and Raspberries! With them combined I just had the best of both worlds! You will be in heaven too if you love these two flavors. Fresh raspberries in a delicious scone almost cookie like in flavor with this buttery tasting frosting. These are the perfect treat when you have the need for a sugar fix!
