Raspberry's and Scones are just as much a part of Scotland as the Rockin' 80's band The Proclaimers are. The Proclaimers, most commonly known for their song "I'm gonna be" ( I would walk 500 miles ), are a Scottish band composed of identical twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid. This scottish recipe is a tribute to their awesome music... Enjoy!
4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter ( Cold, cubed )
1 cup sour cream
dash of milk
2 pints raspberries ( fresh )
Additional sugar for dipping ( I like to use vanilla sugar, found at specialty spice store )
Mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Work in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add sour cream and just enough milk to make dough into a soft mixture. ( not too wet )
Gently fold in berries. Spoon dough into 3-ounce pieces. ( about 1/3 cup )
Dip tops in sugar and place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 325°F until golden brown – approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
Serve with a nice cup of tea and some good scottish music!
