English Scones Recipe

When I came to America from England in 1967, I made sure to bring along my favorite recipe for scones. Served warm with butter, they're perfect for breakfast.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • Additional milk

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in raisins. Beat milk and egg; add to dry ingredients, stirring lightly. Turn onto a lightly floured board; roll to 1-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 10 scones.

"These scones were delicious! The batter was a tad sticky at first, but when rolled out with a mix of flour and sugar, it turned out perfect. One thing though: watch your oven temp extremely because they may burn. GREAT RECIPE"
