Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 7/8 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sieve flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingers or a pastry blender. Add the sugar, baking powder and raisins and mix together well.
  3. Add the milk and mix into a loose dough. Turn onto a floured board and knead until smooth (about 10 times). Roll out; cut the dough in half, then into quarters and then into eighths. Place on a lightly floured baking sheet, then brush the top of each scone with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. When done, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
