Grandma Johnson's Scones
Grandma clearly knew her scones! this is the non healthy, full fat and most wonderful version. If anyone has the heart (no pun intended) to to trim these down in fat please let me know how it worked out.
- Ready In:
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 1 cup raisins, pre soaked to plump
- In a small bowl, blend the sour cream and baking soda, and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
- In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt.
- Cut in the butter. Stir the sour cream mixture and egg into the flour mixture until just moistened. Mix in the raisins.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll or pat dough into a 3/4 inch thick round. Cut into 12 wedges, and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom.

The good news is these are delicious but the bad news is I had a difficult time getting the dough moist enough to knead-having to add another egg and more sour cream. This could be my fault due to the variances in flours hence the five star review. A small amount of solid coconut oil replaced butter. Half the batch was shaped into scones and the other half shaped into a round and baked in a cast iron skillet. Yum! 5 stars for taste! Served with homemade strawberry jam and more butter!
