Ingredients

  • 2 1/4

    cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1/3

    cup sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 3/4

    cup chilled unsalted butter - (1 1/2 sticks) cut 1/2" cubes

  • 3/4

    cup chilled whipping cream plus

  • 2

    tablespoons chilled whipping cream

  • 3/4

    cup hazelnuts toasted, husked, and coarsely chopped

  • 4

    tablespoons raspberry preserves

Directions

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in processor; blend 5 seconds. Add butter and blend, using on/off turns, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 3/4 cup cream. Blend, using on/off turns, just until dough comes together. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup nuts. Gently knead with 4 or 5 turns to mix in nuts. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces; shape each into ball. Press out each to 6-inch round (about 1/4 inch thick). Spread preserves over 2 rounds, leaving 1/2-inch plain border. Place 1 plain dough round atop each preserve-covered round; seal edges. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Wrap in plastic and chill.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter large baking sheet. Place rounds on work surface. Brush each with 1 tablespoon remaining cream; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup nuts, dividing equally and pressing to adhere. Using large knife, cut each round into 6 wedges. Arrange wedges on prepared sheet, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake scones until puffed and deep golden, about 16 minutes. Transfer to platter or napkin-lined basket. Serve warm or at room temperature. This recipe yields 12 scones.
