    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 450.
    2. 2
      Mix dry ingredients together, reserving 1 Tbsp sugar.
    3. 3
      Cut butter into bits and rub into dry ingredients until thoroughly blended.
    4. 4
      (Or pulse in food processor). Beat 2 eggs with cream, and blend into dry ingredients with a few swift strokes.
    5. 5
      Use only a few more strokes to add raisins.
    6. 6
      Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead 10 times; no more. If it is very sticky, add a little flour, but very little; don't worry if it sticks a bit to your hands.
    7. 7
      Press the dough into a 3/4 inch rectangle and cut into 2 inch rounds with a biscuit cutter or glass.
    8. 8
      Place the rounds on an ungreased baking sheet. Gently reshape the leftover dough and cut again; this recipe will produce 10-14 biscuits.
    9. 9
      Beat the remaining egg with 1 tablespoonful of water and brush the top of each scone; sprinkle each with a little of the remaining sugar.
    10. 10
      Bake 7-9 minutes, or until the scones are a beautiful golden brown.
    11. 11
      These keep better than biscuits, but should still be eaten the same day you make them.

    15. 15
      --Substitute fresh fruit (apples, pears, peaches), whole berries (blueberries, cranberries) or minced dried fruit (figs, apricots) for the raisins.
    16. 16
      --Add one teaspoonful or more of cinnamon or ginger, or a pinch of nutmeg or allspice to the dried ingredients.
    17. 17
      --Add one-half cup grated cheese along with the eggs and cream; reduce the sugar to one teaspoon.
    18. 18
      --Add minced fresh herbs to taste-dill, parsley, and chevril are especially good; reduce the sugar to one teaspoonful.
    19. 19

      I'm so sorry to say that these were teribble. They were so sticky, I added 1/2 cup of flour but it needed more like 2 cups more and I didn't have any extra flour at the time. When they came out of the oven they looked amazing! I had just spooned it all into one big lump and it crusted over wonderfully! but when I cut into them to see if they were done I found it almost as if I had never put them in the oven, so I tuned it down to 300 and let it cook fo 20 minutes or so. They were okay, but the consistance was not good.
