My friend had these awesome scones that had a raspberry topping that was thinner than jam drizzled on top of the scones instead of having something inside them.  I have googled for recipes and am not finding something exactly like that.  Has anyone had something like that and have a recipe for it?  Thanks.

This is a glaze you can try on a regular scone

Raspberry Glaze:

Thaw one cup of frozen raspberries. Put them in a fine sift and let them drain into a small

bowl and push with a spoon as much as possible of the thawed raspberries through the

sift.

In different small bowl take 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and mix that with 3 Tablespoons

of the raspberry juice until you get a smooth mixture that can be drizzled over the scones.

Try heating a few tablespoonfulls of good raspberry jam (maybe seedless) in the microwave for a minute or so.  It'll melt a bit and be more runny.  If it's still not drizzle-able, add a little warm water, a teaspoon or so at a time.

 

Sometimes the most special things can also be the simplest!

Why don't you just ask your friend for the recipe?

 

eta - let us know how these suggestions work for you.

It was a friend's friend that made it, but all the same I should have my friend just ask her friend for the recipe.  I was just trying to do my friend a favor.  I'll try the to above though and see how they turn out (as soon as the heat wave is over)

Really.  Why do I get the urge to bake when it is 100 degrees out?

I always want ice cream when it snows too.
