I finally made homemade scones at home and you can too! Who knew scones were so easy to make and I used to buy them all the time at bakeries. There’s a ton of recipes on blueberry scones so I decided to make something a little different: raspberry almond scones with a honey-butter glaze!

Instead of using sugar in these scones, I’m using Aunt Sue’s®️ Raw & Unfiltered Honey that is produced right here in the USA by 250+ USA independent family beekeepers who make up the Sioux Honey Association Co-op.

 

Aunt Sue’s honey

Did you know honeybees pollinate 71 of the 100 crops that provide 90% of the world’s food? Honeybees pollinate $50 billion worth of crops a year! Aunt Sue’s honey is available in two bold flavors – wildflower or clover. In this raspberry almond scones recipe, I’m using Aunt Sue’s raw & unfiltered honey in wildflower. The wildflower honey is pure, pollen-rich, unfiltered and all-natural, allowing it to maintain its unique and robust sweetness!

Now onto the scones! These scones can be made in advance, stored in the freezer and popped into the oven. I made two batches of these scones and the frozen ones baked beautifully in the oven.
