LEMON RASPBERRY SCONES

This is one of my favorite sweet treats to make in the spring and summer. These scones are packed with fresh lemon and raspberry, and a secret ingredient, making them super moist and so delicious.

Some people hear scones, and head for the hills, and I get it. Often, they turn out dry, flavorless and way too crumbly. But not these scones. They’re made with Greek yogurt, and the results are perfectly moist and fluffy. The fresh flavors are perfect for the season, and the three step recipe is a no brainer that comes together in 20 minutes. Plus these are drop scones, so no messy counters and sticky rolling pins.

I whipped these scones up for Mother’s Day Sunday this year, and the only thing that would have made them better would have been sharing them with my mom (perhaps with a mimosa!) Give them a shot! You won’t regret it.

Lemon Raspberry Scones

I absolutely love these moist, fluffy, sweet and bright scones. They are bursting with flavor, and perfect bites of fresh raspberry. Goodbye dry scones! Greek yogurt is the secret ingredient that transforms these scones into moist, yummy treats. And these are made even easier to make because they are drop-biscuit style. Finally, it’s all topped off with a tangy lemon glaze.
