Raspberry White Chocolate Scones feature tender-crisp crumbs, bright berry flavor and sweet white chocolate melding together in one special breakfast treat.
Preheat oven to 425 F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk well. Add the cubed butter pieces and cut it into the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter (or two forks), until the mixture looks like a coarse meal.
Pour in the buttermilk and add the lemon zest. Stir the mixture with a fork until the ingredients are moistened and the dough clings together when pressed with your fingers. Very gently fold in the chocolate chips and raspberries.
Gather the dough and knead it onto a floured board gently just until the dough comes together. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a disc that is 1/2 inch high and about 7 inches in diameter. Cut each portion into 6 wedges, forming a total of 12 wedges. Brush the surface with melted butter and sprinkle sugar on top.
Transfer each scone into a baking sheet(s) that is lined with parchment. Bake the scones a 425 F for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
