Mrs. Bethel's Scones © llizard aka ejm 2000, 2002

These scones are the best scones I've ever had. The nutmeg is the secret ingredient. I often make them with currants instead of raisins, so why not use raspberries too? Or cranberries... now there's an idea!

Ingredients Preheat oven to 450ºF Preparation
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in shortening. Add raisins and milk. Stir just until it all holds together.

  2. Knead about 20 times.

  3. Pat out and cut into 1 inch thick squares and place on a cookie sheet dusted with corn meal.

  4. Let sit on the cookie sheet 6 or 7 minutes.

  5. Bake at 450ºF for 10 minutes.
