 Recipe by: THE FRUGAL GOURMET

 

Scone Preparation:

* 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 over mix. It should take only a few turns to get 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 non-greased baking sheet at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with butter and raspberry jam. Makes 12 scones.
