These scones are soooooooo delicious and simple to make. I sent some to my brother in Iraq and all his soldiers loved them!!! These are great because they're not overly sweet, but completely delicious.

Thanks for sharing! I wanted quick and easy drop-scone recipe for our Christmas Tea. These were perfect! I added dried cranberries for my add-in and baked them in my Lodge cast-iron scone pan. The pan took about 1/4 c. of batter for each scone and I sprinkled them with sugar crystals before baking. This made 14 scones (could easily have been 16 - I was pretty generous with the batter). I will definitely use this again ... and again ... and again!
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup butter or 3⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 egg, well beaten plus
- milk, to make 1 cup
- 1 cup raisins (my favorite) or 1 cup dried cranberries (my favorite) or 1 cup mini chocolate chip (my favorite)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 450. Grease or spray a large cookie sheet.
- Stir together dry ingredients including the sugar. Cut butter into flour mixture. Add raisins (or whatever you use), stir to mix well.
- Beat egg in measuring cup. Add milk to make 1 cup. Stir into flour.
- Drop roughly tablespoon size scoops on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- (You can knead 15-20 times and roll out and cut if you wish -- but I prefer the ease of the drop method.).
