  • 1 1/2 cup raisins*


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Scoop a small handful of dough and form a biscuit-like shape.
  3. Place on cookie sheet with parchment or sill pat.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until golden on top.
  5. Remove and cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  6. You may glaze them with 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice. Mix and spread over slightly cooled scone. *I have used Craisins, currents and chopped pecans instead of raisins and the scones are always delicious
