English Scones

Adapted from Robert's Recipes

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup sultana raisins
1 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter until the size of small peas and stir in raisins. Pour in milk and mix with a fork until soft sticky dough forms.
3. Turn out dough onto floured surface and knead a couple times until no longer sticky. Pat into a circle about 3/4" inch thick. Cut circle into 8-10 wedges then place wedges onto baking sheet.
4. Bake scones 12-14 minutes until golden brown on top, browned on the bottom, and hollow sounding when tapped lightly on top. Serve scones warm with butter and jam if desired!

Best served with a cup of tea!
