1 3/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup raisins (regular or golden)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Topping Ingredients:
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
Measure and then combine the dry ingredients
With a pastry blender, cut in the butter
Combine milk and eggs and then add to the dry ingredients with the raisins and walnuts
Stir to blend
Roll out and cut into 3 inch squares
Cut each square diagonally so you have triangles
Place on an un-greased baking sheet
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a separate container
Brush the scones with melted butter, then sprinkle them with the sugar-cinnamon combination
Bake 15-18 minutes at 425 degrees F
Tip: To accurately measure flour (dry ingredients), spoon it lightly into a dry measuring cup and
level with a spatula or the back of a knife.
Tip: If a recipe calls for sifting several dry ingredients, just put all the ingredients in a mixing
bowl and stir with a whisk. It is much quicker and easier.
