Raisin Scones

Raisin Scones!

Adapted from a Ina Gardner recipe

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar plus extra to sprinkle
2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 sticks cold salted butter, cut in cubes
2 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup cold half & half cream plus extra to brush on scones prior to baking.

Makes 16 scones ** you can cut recipe in half to make 8 scones

Per-heat oven 400 degrees

Throw all your ingredients in a mixer. Mix till just blended it will look like cookie dough. It’s ok if there is still small chunks of butter.

Raisin dough

Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface and lightly knead it into a ball. Divide it in two. Flour your hands and shape the dough into a square. Cut the square into quarters then cut again into eighths, diagonally, making triangles.

Divide dough

Brush the tops of the scones with half &half creme, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are browned and the insides are fully baked. The scones will be firm to touch.
