Amaretto Raspberry Scone Recipe



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!
Amaretto Raspberry Scone Recipe

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon flour
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon Amaretto liqueur
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup roasted sliced almonds
1 cup raspberries

Mix all dry ingredients together with softened butter till crumbly. Add the cream, almonds,  Amaretto and extract.Mix together until well mixed. Fold in the berries.



  They will be squished a little but you can't help it, I know how beautiful these berries look and they are!  Make a round dough and cut like a pie.  Place on parchment paper or a silpat mat.  Bake at 350 degree hot preheated oven until browned around 25 minutes. Drizzle with frosting below.



Amaretto Frosting:

1 cup powdered sugar
Heavy cream around 2 or 3 tablespoons or more as needed
1 teaspoon Amaretto plus 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Garnish sliced toasted almonds
Mix sugar and heavy cream and extract a little at at a time making a thin frosting. Add almonds. 

Drizzle over warm scones.
