A Lovely Scone Recipe

I thought I'd share my favorite scone recipe with you.

For those who might not know what a scone is, it's like a biscuit only they usually have some kind of fruit or other added ingredient.

Raisin Oatmeal Scones
1 and 1/2 Cups of flour
1 Cup oats, uncooked
1/4 Cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup or 1 stick of margarine melted
1/3 Cup milk
1/3 Cup raisins (I add extra because I'm a raisin nut)

Combine all of the dry ingredients, which is the first five on the list, in a large bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients with a spoon just until the dry ingredients are moistened.

Lightly flour your counter top or cutting board. Place dough on cutting board and knead about 15 times. Flatten dough.

Roll dough with a rolling pin into an eight inch circle. If you don't have a rolling pin you can flatten and shape with your hands.

Cut into triangle wedges using a pizza cutter or knife.

Place wedges on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving about a half inch or more in between them for even heating.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Keep an eye on them as ovens vary.

Makes about 12 scones.

Delicious!! :o)

This is a cute old song. They've disabled the embed code so you'll have to go to YouTube to see it. Enjoy.
