Yield: 20 scones
|1½ tablespoon||Baking powder|
|¾ cup||Whole milk|
Preheat the oven to 425F. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add the eggs, milk and raisings. Stir quickly with a fork until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and forms a ball. Spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet to form the desired number of scones.
Leave at least 1" between the scones. Bake until golden (about 12-15 minutes). Remove to a wire rack, and brush immediately with honey.
Serve at once with butter, jam and whipped cream.
