Recipe by loof
Easy to make with staple ingredients, these scones are wonderful for breakfast or with a nice cup of hot tea or coffee. The recipe came from a cookbook called "Stand By Your Pan: Country Music Cookbook" by Diane Pfeifer. Her funny alternative country-music-inspired title for the recipe is "Diggin' Up Scones" :)

Photo may be seen here (in the Savor gallary): www.annacia.com. No doubt about it, these yummy scones are quick to make. Instead of the raisins I added a very healthy tbsp of Extreme Dark Drinking Chocolate to the dry ingredients. I should say too that I used a very thick Greek yogurt and needed to add about 2 tbsp of milk in order to get everything mixed. I had no problem with the soda coming through to strong and I think you need it if baking with yogurt, buttermilk and such. They came out delicious. :D
