Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly dust baking sheet with flour. Sift first 4 ingredients into large bowl. Add butter and blend with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in raisins. Whisk cream and eggs in small bowl to blend. Pour over crumb mixture, stirring just until combined. Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface. Press dough into 1 inch thick round. Cut out rounds using 3-inch round cookie cutter. Gather dough scraps and press to thickness of 1 inch. Cut out additional rounds. Transfer scones to prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking until light brown, about 18 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve scones warm.
