Chocolate Chip Raspberry Scones

 
Unbaked scone. The heart is somewhat silly. It had to be cut and split before baking, but the kids liked the heart so I made it!
 

In honor of Valentine’s Day today, the kids and I made yummy, yummy scones. One thing I do to save time is to make baking packets for my freezer. I got this idea from one of my favorite blogs: lifeasmom. So, this morning, the kids and I got out 6 bowls and the scone ingredients, and got to work assembling scone packets for my freezer. Of course, we also had to make one recipe to eat today.

I use the recipe here as my basic scone recipe and just change up the mix-ins depending on what I have on hand and what we feel like eating.

To make Chocolate Chip Raspberry  scones, I simply added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and 1/2 cup frozen raspberries instead of the apples and pears the original recipe called for. The scones this morning ranked right up there, but my all time favorite mix-in is fresh rhubarb from my garden. I can’t wait for it to start growing!!! I have also made apple/pear, all chocolate chip, blueberry, and apple.

After we put the scones in the oven, I bagged up the ingredients in each bowl for use later on! Next time I want to make scones, all I have to do is pull a baggie out of the freezer, add butter, mix-ins, and water, and bake! The packets speed up breakfast, save me prep and clean up time, and make me happy. Can’t beat that.

Do you have an idea for a good mix-in? I’m also looking for new ideas.

  1. Matt and I took a cooking class last Saturday(Groupon purchase) and one of the items we made were scones. We made chocolate chip and cherry. They also had orange zest in them, they were so yummy and easy to make.
