  • When selecting the butter for this recipe, be sure to use a very cold butter to ensure that the scones are light and fluffy.
  • For the white chocolate chips, you can use either white chocolate chips or white chocolate chopped into small pieces.

  • Substitution 1: Replace the butter with coconut oil. The benefit of this substitution is that it is a healthier alternative, as coconut oil contains healthy fats and has been shown to have a range of health benefits. Additionally, it has a mild coconut flavor that can add an interesting depth of flavor to the scones.
  • Substitution 2: Replace the white chocolate chips with dark chocolate chips. The benefit of this substitution is that dark chocolate is a healthier alternative, as it contains more antioxidants and less sugar than white chocolate. Additionally, it has a richer flavor that can complement the raspberry flavor nicely.

Chocolate Chip Coconut Scones Replace the raspberry filling and white chocolate chips with 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of shredded coconut. Reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup and replace the buttermilk with coconut milk. Omit the egg wash and sprinkle the scones with shredded coconut before baking.

Honey-Lemon Yogurt:

This light and creamy yogurt is the perfect accompaniment to the sweet and tart flavors of the White Chocolate Raspberry Scones. The honey and lemon in the yogurt will bring out the sweetness of the scones, while the creamy texture will provide a nice contrast to the crunchy scones. It's a great way to balance out the flavors and keep the meal light and refreshing.

Blueberry Compote: This sweet and tangy compote is the perfect complement to the White Chocolate Raspberry Scones. The blueberries provide a tart flavor that will balance out the sweetness of the scones, while the compote's syrupy texture will add a nice contrast. It's a great way to add a little extra flavor to the meal without overpowering the scones.
