British Scones

My mother in law submitted her recipe to the "Hometown Recipes for the Holidays" called British Scones. My husband called his mom to asked for the recipe but mom told him that she brought a recipe book when they visited us here in California. They're laughing at each other because we forgot about it. So my husband made it... looks so yummy... and taste really, really good... try it!


Here is the recipe for you, feel free to grab it..

2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup currants or candied fruit
1 cup sour milk

Tips from sour test kitchen
To sour milk, add 1 tablespoon lemon juice to 1 cup milk. Let stand for 15 minutes. For a sweeter scone, use Craisins instead of raisins or currants and sprinkle raw sugar on top.

1. Preheat the oven to 425 *F
2. Combine 2 1/2 cups of the flour, the sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Cut in the softened butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add the raisins and currants, mixing until the fruit is coated with the flour mixture.
3. Add the sour milk and mix well.
4. Turn the mixture onto a floured board and knead, adding enough extra flour to make a slightly stiff dough. Pat to about 3/4-inch thickness and cut with a 2-inch round cutter. Place the scones on the baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm or cool.
