    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 tablespoon lukewarm water


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. 2
      Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt in a mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      Cut in the chilled butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. (I prefer to grate in frozen butter).
    4. 4
      Add the raisins, beaten egg, and enough buttermilk to make a soft dough.
    5. 5
      Knead very lightly on a floured board to just combine the ingredients, handling gently to retain air needed for scones to rise.
    6. 6
      Roll out to a ½ inch thickness.
    7. 7
      Cut the dough into 8 thick wedges with a sharp knife.
    8. 8
      Place the scones on 2 greased baking sheets, leaving a ½ inch space around each one.
    9. 9
      To glaze, combine the egg yolk and water in a bowl and brush onto each scone (be careful not to drip any of the glaze onto the pan or the scones will stick).
    10. 10
      Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

      Excellent scones. I like my scone a bit sweeter so I added 1/4 cup of sugar. The rest of the recipe remains the same. These are light, fluffy, soft, tender. So good! Thanks for sharing the recipe Donna.
