15 mins                        15 mins                     5 mins

Total Time:                Servings:                   Yield:
35 mins                       8                                8 scones

2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup sugar 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
½ teaspoon salt 
¼ teaspoon baking soda 
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
frozen ½ cup raisins (or dried currants)
½ cup sour cream 
1 large egg 
1 teaspoon white sugar 

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper. 
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. 
3. Grate the frozen butter into the flour mixture using a box grater. Use your fingers to work the butter into the mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs. 
4. Then, add the raisins. 
5. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and egg until well combined. 
6. Stir the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture using a fork until large clumps of dough form. 
7. Use your hands to shape the dough into a ball. Don't worry if it seems dry at first - it will come together as you work it. 
8. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and pat it into a 7- to 8-inch circle that's about 3/4-inch thick.  
9. Sprinkle the remaining teaspoon of sugar on top. 
10.Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 equal triangles, then place them on the prepared baking tray, about 1 inch apart. 
11. Bake the scones in the preheated oven for about 15 to 17 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. 
12. Let them cool for 5 minutes, then serve them warm or at room temperature. 

 Want to try some different flavors? Here are a few variations you can experiment with:
