Amaretto Raspberry Scones

Sunday, August 10, 2014
Amaretto Raspberry Scones are the best tasting scones drizzled with Amaretto icing I ever tasted!

Using basic and simple pantry ingredients, these flaky delicious scones are just amazing in flavor.

The results are fabulous and these can be made in less than 30 minutes.

Even if you're not a baker, and you love the taste of freshly baked scones, these are fabulous and just like your favorite coffee shop.

Serve them as is or with a little red raspberry preserves with the tea of coffee and it's a winner.

Don't take my word, try them and watch them disappear quickly.

Great Breakfast and Brunch

These are perfect for on the go folks for breakfast, brunch or even taking to the beach, you don't have to add the frosting just leave them plain for traveling.

Most of the time we leave half plain for those who wish to spread butter on them, jams or even some clotted cream.

Scones are perfect for brings to picnics and the beach, everyone loves them.

Scone Lovers

If you've never had a scone before, they are much like a buttery flaky quick bread but so much better and quite addicting.

They're not dry like biscuits and the tender moist inside with berries just makes these the perfect combination.
