How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large bowl, whisk the 2 cups of flour with the baking powder, salt and the 1/4 cup of sugar. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until it resembles small peas. Add the raspberries and toss. In a small bowl, whisk the jam into the milk until dissolved; whisk in the egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients all at once and stir until the dough is evenly moistened and the raspberries are slightly smashed.

Step 2    

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Sprinkle the dough with a little more flour and pat into a 1-inch-thick disk. Using a 3-inch round biscuit cutter, stamp out as many scones as you can. Gently gather the scraps, press them together and cut more scones. Transfer the scones to a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 3    

Preheat the oven to 400°. Brush the tops of the scones with cream and sprinkle generously with sugar. Bake the scones for about 17 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Transfer the scones to a rack and let cool slightly before serving.
