Here is my recipe for scones. I've been making them for 25 years. I love this recipe. Does anyone have any other tried and true scone recipes.
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup raisins (or dried cranberries)
1 cup milk (or buttermilk)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter (cold, cut in cubes)
1 egg (separated)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Rub in the butter. Add the dry fruit. Beat the egg white and add to the milk. Add to the dry ingredients. The dough will be wet. Sprinkle some flour on counter and some on top. Pat dough into a circle about 12 inches round. Cut the scones with dough scraper into quarters and then into 12 triangles. Place on ccokie sheet. Stir the egg yolk with a touch of water. Brush on tops. Bake until golden brown, 12 minutes or so.
