Yogurt and Raisin Scones

There are two schools of thought regarding scones, ‘eggs’ or ‘no eggs’. Admittedly, I find myself leaning towards ‘no eggs’, considering scones to be in the same family as soda bread and the American biscuit.

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar + 1 teaspoon for sprinkling on top
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, cold and cut into cubes
1/2 cup yogurt, plain
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 425° F

Mix together all the dry ingredients
cut in the butter
add raisins
add yogurt and water

Knead the dough until it just barely forms a ball
press the dough into a circle about 8-9 inches in diameter on a baking sheet
cut into 8 triangles
sprinkle with sugar

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown

Serve warm with lemon curd if you are so inclined.

#persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook It's going to be a #smallbatch #thanksgiving this year. #audreycancook #indigo dyed #shibori pillows
#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
