Raspberry Lemon Scones Simplified

I love a good muffin, and biscuits, well, I could eat so many of them I’d explode.  But, what if we melded a muffin and a biscuit together?  I don’t know what we’d call them.  Mufcuits?  Bisfins?  They are kind of like a scone, I suppose, but better.  Savory and fruity, with a hearty base, and just a twist of calorie free sweetness, these Raspberry Lemon Scones are fantastic!  And with a biscuit mix base, they are also incredibly simple to make.

Tips on Ingredients for Raspberry Lemon Scones

Stevia is an amazing sweetener.  No calories, made from a beautiful plant, and super sweet, just a little bit goes a long way.  I love stevia in my coffee, and it was a natural transition to use it in baking.  A good baking mix is the base for these scones, so choose something you enjoy on its own.  I love Pamela’s gluten-free baking mix, so I used that, making the basic biscuit recipe on the back.  After cutting in the milk with a pastry cutter, I added the lemon zest and raspberries, cutting them slightly and breaking them up.  Then, it was time to make Raspberry Lemon Scones!

Variations on Raspberry Lemon Scones

You can use just about any berry in Raspberry Lemon Scones, making them quite versatile and changeable with the seasons.  But if you aren’t in the mood for fresh fruit, try some dried!  Cranberries, blueberries, or even cherries are great as a replacement in Raspberry Lemon Scones.  You can soak the dried berries in water or juice to soften them a little bit so they aren’t crispy once they are baked.  Try a variety of berries to get a different flavor, or even chocolate chips!

Next time you’d like to make something a little sweet to go with your coffee, make some Raspberry Lemon Scones and enjoy a flavorful treat!
