Delicate and buttery scones made with fresh raspberries, almond meal, and raspberry almond coffee topped off with a raspberry almond coffee glaze.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
I know you've been seeing a lot of scones on my blog over the last few months but they are my new favorite breakfast and snack. They buttery crumb paired with a crunchy exterior in a variety of flavors is just so good served with a cup of coffee.
These raspberry scones are a little bit different then my other scones. To start with they have Door County Coffee Raspberry Almond flavored coffee in both the scones and the glaze. Then they have fresh raspberries and almond meal in the scone for additional flavor.
If you haven't tried this flavor of coffee you are missing out. I love baking with it and it's pretty tasty as a cup of coffee as well. There are strong notes of raspberry and lighter notes of almonds. It makes me think of spring for sure.

I know that a lot of people think scones are hard to make but they really aren't. As long as you get the correct liquid to dry ingredient measurement they'll turn out right.
This recipe actually have me some trouble. I had a little too much liquid in it the first time and a little too much baking powder in it the second time. However, even with too much baking powder these scones tasted amazing.
To make the scones I combined the flour, almond meal, baking powder, salt, and Dixie Crystals Sugar in a large bowl. Then I cut the butter into small pieces and added it to the bowl of dry ingredients. It's important to use your hands to mix the butter into the flour mixture until your mixture resembles wet sand.
Then I mixed in the egg, milk, Door County Coffee Raspberry Almond coffee, and Taylor and Colledge Almond Paste into the mixture and mixed until a dough came together. At this point if your dough is sticky you can add in a little bit of additional flour.
Then I turned the dough onto a floured cutting board and shaped it into a half inch thick circle. Using a pizza cutter I cut the dough into eight pieces. Then I put them on a baking sheet.
At this point you can simply bake them as is or you can fancy them up a bit. I chose to brush them with an egg wash and sprinkled them with sanding sugar to make them sparkle. I baked them until they were golden brown.
Once the scones cooled I whipped up a quick glaze made of powdered sugar and coffee. I drizzled it onto the scones and then sprinkled them with additional sanding sugar.
When serving I added a few fresh raspberries. You could also add a dollop of homemade cinnamon whipped cream or Devonshire cream if you want to get fancy.
Pro Tips and Substitutions:
- If you don't have almond meal you can put ½ cup of chopped or slivered almonds in the scones instead.
- Feel free to substitute blackberries, strawberries, or blueberries in place of the raspberries.
- You can use your favorite flavor of coffee in the glaze.
