Servings: 1 Dozen scones
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 30 min
3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
3 large eggs
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup raisins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the flour and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add the 1/4 cup sugar, beating until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and then add the flour mixture and the buttermilk. Sprinkle the raisins over the dough and gently fold them in. Using an ice-cream scoop, place mounds of dough on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve the scones warm, with softened butter and preserves.
