2 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3 teaspoons Baking powder
2 tablespoons Sugar
1/4 cup Cold butter
1/2 cup Raisins *
1/2 cup Half and half or cream
1 Egg -- beaten
* Note: Soak raisins in hot water for 1/2 hour. Drain.
Sift the dry ingredients together. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients,
using a pastry blender. Add the drained raisins to the flour mixture. Mix the
half-and-half with the beaten egg and stir into the flour mixture. Use a fork
and do not overmix. It should take only a few turns to get a dough. Divide the
dough into three balls and pat each out into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Cut each
into four triangular scones. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 450 degrees
for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with butter and raspberry
Makes 12 scones.
