Level Up Your Scone Game with this Recipe

Scones. They’re a humble pastry, often overshadowed by more glamorous bakery fare. But when done right, they can steal the show. Our scones are a departure from the mundane, introducing a jam that’s a literal burst of flavors—raspberry for the tart sweetness and pomegranate for a unique twist.

Now, the real secret to making these scones unforgettable lies in how you incorporate the butter. The “quick and gentle” technique ensures that the butter remains cold, leading to a flakier end product. The milk serves as a tenderizer, making each bite melt in your mouth.

It’s not just about the flavor though; it’s also about the experience. The technique of rotating the cutter as you push down ensures the scones rise to their full potential, making them look as fantastic as they taste.
