A recipe I found in my catalogue from King Arthur Flour. The recipes states "This traditional British scone is an ideal tea-time treat when served with clotted cream or butter and jam. It states to use their White Whole Wheat Flour, but I just use All purpose flour. I made the walnuts and raisins optional, depending on your families tastes.

  2. Add walnuts, and raisins and toss to incorporate.
  3. Pour the buttermilk into the center of the mixture and stir until dough is just cohesive.

  5. Or, pat into a square and cut square scones.
