Cinnamon Raisin Scone

Who knew scones could taste good? I started with my recipe from last time and sweetened it up.

Preheat oven to 325F

1/2 cup soft butter
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder - yes 4
1/2 cup raisins or two handfuls or that looks like enough

1/2 cup milk at least
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Mix flour, salt, baking powder, raisins and sugar. Slowly add 1/2 cup milk, mixing into dry ingredients with a fork.  When the dough balls up, it has enough milk (use more if needed).  Sprinkle cinnamon over the dough, not evenly. Gather into a ball and roll flat to one inch thick on a board dusted with corn flour (or wheat). Cut into 2 inch rounds. Melt the tablespoon of butter and mix into the brown sugar. Brush this mixture on the top of the scones.  Put in oven for 25-30 minutes on a ceramic cookie sheet or 15-20 on a metal one.

I put the brown sugar on top after brushing on the butter. It was ok but I'm hoping mixing the butter and brown sugar will produce a better result. In either case, these taste great! Just sweet enough.
