How to Make Apple - Raisin Scones with Bourbon Whipped Cream


  • 1In a large bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • 2In a medium bowl toss diced apples with cinnamon then add to large bowl along with the raisins and stir.
  • 3In a medium bowl combine sour cream, egg and bourbon. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add this all at once. Stir until combined.
  • 4Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead by gently folding and pressing for about 10-12 strokes. Pat into about a 12 inch circle and using a 3 inch cookie cutter cut out about 8 circles.
  • 5Place the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet. With your fingers rub some egg wash on the top of each scone and sprinkle with the coarse sugar.
  • 6Bake at 375 for 15 minutes until edges begin to brown.
  • 7While cooling whip the cream and sugar with a hand mixer. When whipped, fold in the bourbon and serve prepared cream with the scones.
