• Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 12 scones
  • Preparation Time:



  • 3 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 T. baking powder
  • 6 T. cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 6 T. sugar
  • 1/2 c. golden raisins
  • 1 c. milk


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir the flour and baking powder together until well blended. Using a pastry cutter, 2 knives, or your fingers, cut or rub the butter in until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the sugar and raisins and mix well. Quickly stir in the milk to make a firm dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead lightly until smooth. Roll out to a 3/8-in. thickness and cut into 2-in. rounds with a pastry cutter. Place the scones 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined or greased baking sheet, brush with a little milk, and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm.
