Ready in 30 minutes
adapted from a recipe, about 1989; our family loves these raisin scones...often the ones you buy in a bakery are too sweet
"We enjoyed these raisin scones; they were easy to make and delicious! I used a very good quality, ice cold, unsalted butter (good butter is what makes them flaky, moist and oh, so good). Also, for our families tastes, we didn't think that amount of raisins in the recipe was nearly enough...so we almost doubled the amount of raisins, plump them in boiling water for a few minutes, drained them and patted them dry before adding to the recipe. The scones turned out beautifully, tender and crisp, not overly sweet but had a nice delicate flavor."- sgrishka
Top-ranked recipe named "Scones"
Mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, then cut in butter till it looks like coarse meal. Beat egg with milk and stir into dry ingredients with raisins till well combined into a soft sticky dough. Divide into 8 pieces and place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 450? for about 5 minutes, then 375? for about 10 more minutes, till tops are golden brown.

Leko_24 1 year agoLoved these - thank you!! I've since added my own variations to the recipe, the last being adding lemon 2 table spoons of lemon rind - which added fantastic flavour to the scones and was a pleasant surprise to everyone who are the scones
