It takes just a few minutes to mix the batter and pop the pan into the oven for a delicious better-than-bakery treat.

Ingredients for Breakfast Scones

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, margarine or transfat-free shortening (or a combination of these)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup raisins

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a 9-inch pie plate. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter, margarine or transfat-free shortening with a fork or pastry blender under mixture is well combined. Add milk, eggs, and raisins and stir until dry ingredients are moist—mixture will be sticky.

Spoon mixture into prepared pie plate and evenly spread mixture to pie plate edges using a silicon or rubber kitchen spatula. Score the dough into 8 wedges with the point of a sharp knife. Bake at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the scone is lightly browned. Serve warm.
