Step 1

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Grate the frozen butter using a box grater. Add it to the flour mixture and combine with a pastry cutter, two forks, or your fingers until the mixture comes together in pea-sized crumbs. See video above for a closer look at the texture. Place in the refrigerator or freezer as you mix the wet ingredients together.

Step 2

Whisk 1/2 cup buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the flour mixture, add the raspberries, then mix together until everything appears moistened.

Step 3

Pour onto the counter and, with floured hands, work dough into a ball as best you can. Dough will be sticky. If it’s too sticky, add a little more flour. Press into an 8-inch disc and, with a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut into 8 wedges.

Step 4

Brush scones with remaining buttermilk and top with sliced almonds. (You can do this before or after refrigerating in the next step.)

Step 5

Place scones on a plate or lined baking sheet (if your fridge has space!) and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Step 6

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).

Step 7

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. After refrigerating, arrange scones 2-3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet(s).

Step 8

Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes as you prepare the icing.

Step 9

Toss the raspberries and granulated sugar together. Vigorously stir to break up the raspberries. Allow to sit for 5 minutes as the raspberries let out their juices. Strain the raspberries through a fine mesh sieve over a medium bowl. Use a spoon to press them through, extracting all the juices. You’ll have about 3 Tablespoons of juice. Whisk in the confectioners’ sugar and milk. Add a little more confectioners’ sugar to thicken or more milk to thin, if desired. Drizzle over warm scones.

Step 10

Leftover iced or un-iced scones keep well at room temperature for 2 days or in the refrigerator for 5 days.
