This scone has a soft center with a firm exterior, it's chock full of apples and flavor. The bourbon whipped cream is the icing on the cake, so to speak. My family loves this delicious scone for breakfast or as a sweet snack, creamy and delicious.

This scone recipe is a little different than others we've tried. They're not very sweet and almost like a biscuit. But, boy they were good. Apples and raisins add a slight sweetness to the scone. The scone itself has a subtle bourbon flavor that blends well with the fruit. The bourbon whipped cream is a delicious touch. But since it's not cooked, it does have a strong bourbon flavor. This could easily be cut back to suit your taste. These apple raisin scones are easy to make and would be a lovely afternoon snack with a cup of tea or a special breakfast treat.
