Raspberry Thyme Scones are a sweet little treat, perfect for an afternoon of self-care. A tiny table set up in the yard with a thermos of herbal tea, a good book, and a plate of baked goods is a great way to relax and enjoy time alone. Feel free to substitute any other berries or fresh herbs you like, or happen to have on hand.

A Note On Shaping Scones
I’m a perfectionist and love to weigh out my dough into equal size portions to ensure consistent size across the board. That being said, another option for shaping scones is to pat the dough into a 3/4-inch high circle and then cut it into triangular slices like a pizza. If you choose this route, you may want to try adding half of your raspberries before you pat the dough. Once your circle is formed and patted out, gently press the remaining raspberries into the top before slicing.
