Chocolate Chip Raspberry Scones

This simple scone recipe can be modified in a variety of different ways. Blueberries instead of Raspberries. Leave out the chocolate chips, replace them with white chocolate or butterscotch. Add 1/2 teaspoon of mint or almond extract. Thanks to AnnT at Houzz for the original recipe.

  • 1 cup heavy cream (or whipping cream) - (high altitude - increase to 1-1/4 cups)
