This recipe makes a crumbly scone which is very biscuit like. They turn out not-too-sweet which allows one to slather on as much jam or honey as one likes. Those in the small dwellings prefer their crumbs with jam. Honey sticks to their teeny hands far too much.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (I've played with this amount and it turns out fine either way)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 stick of cold butter
2 large eggs
1/3 cup milk (fat free to whole...it all works the same, but whole is so much more luscious!)
2/3 cup golden raisins (if you'd like)
Preheat oven to 425 F. Add flour, sugar and baking powder into a large bowl. Using your fingers blend butter evenly into the flour until mixture is crumbly. Add eggs, milk and raisins (or other dried fruit. I've also mashed in 2 or 3 tablespoons of a good jam just before rolling into log. Messy, but delicious and the recipe works just fine). Stir just until combined. Pat into a ball and place onto a lightly floured board. Roll dough into a log, 16 inches long. Cut into 16 pieces. Place rounds onto a prepared (buttered and floured) cookie sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 15 minutes or such.
