Raspberry & Chocolate Scones

These scones were amazing, just amazing. Chocolate and raspberries are two peas in a pod. Good by themselves, even better together. The scones were crispy on the outside soft and moist on the inside. I did learn a trick about getting the outside of scones more crispy which is to sprinkle a little powdered sugar and broil for a few seconds after they've been baked. Do be careful because you could ruin a perfectly fine batch of scones if you're not watching closely. I was hosting a brunch and got distracted by the talking and while the scones looked like they're burned, they're not! They had perfect taste though they were not aesthetically perfect.

I'm not writing out the recipe because it can be found at the Joy of Baking (click on title to take you the recipe).

Raspberries and chocolate are a match made in heaven!!!I love scones for breakfast, but must admit that I usually make savory scones with cheese. I may very well change my mind next time!!!!!Fruit is wonderful for breakfast too!!!

Chocolate and raspberries are a great combinations. I have been meaning to try making scones for a while now and this sounds like a pretty good place to start.

SINFUL!

I hesitated just before clicking your link in my bookmarks, because I haven't yet had breakfast and I was afraid you'd post something that would make me realize I'm starving.

Thankfully, the scones didn't make me drool. I guess I'm really not hungry.

They do sound great, though.

Never tried making scones before. This is very tempting.
