Cinnamon Raisin Scones

When I was little, we used to have some amazing cinnamon raisin scones for special occasions. I decided to recreate them this week. My family loved them so much, I’m making them again this weekend for breakfast.

In a medium bowl, combine:

  • 2 1/2 C Bisquick
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 t cinnamon

Using a box grater, grate in

  • 1/4 C cold butter

Using a fork, stir in

  • 1/4 C buttermilk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 t almond extract

Stir in

  • 1 c raisins

When the mixture is completely combined,

  • pat it out into a 9″ circle ¬†and divide it into eight triangles (like cutting a pie). Put the pieces in a circle on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

or

  • if you have a scone pan, divide the dough into eight equal parts and pat the dough into the greased sections.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes.

The ones I had growing up always had a glaze. I suppose you could make a glaze out of powdered sugar, milk and almond extract, but I like prefer them warm with butter. YUM!
