Lemon Poppyseed

If you’ve never had a scone, you truly are missing out. It’s kind of a cross between a biscuit and a sweet bread. Maybe you have ordered one from a coffee shop or bakery, but there is nothing better than making them yourself.

Lemons and poppyseeds are such a classic combination, but when you add raspberries, it definitely elevates this recipe.

For years now, I have been making Berry Scones because my husband loves them. Truth be told, so do I. It wasn’t until recently that I even thought to mix up the highlight ingredients. I bought some raspberries that were on sale and I forgot them in the fridge. They got stuck behind some leftovers.

Anyone else do that?

Raspberries really don’t last long and there weren’t looking too great. Not terribly appetizing to just eat straight out of the carton. It’s then that I thought to use them in my scones and add some lemon for zing. It was such a perfect combination!

They have now become the new favorite version and I’m happy to finally be sharing them with you!
