Golden Raisin and Orange Scones
Write a review
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. ¼ cup sugar
  3. 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 4 tablespoons cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  7. ½ cup golden raisins
  8. 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold heavy whipping cream, divided
  9. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, and salt, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add raisins, stirring to blend.
  4. In a liquid-measuring cup, combine 1 cup cream and vanilla extract, stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture, stirring until mixture is evenly moist. (If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time.) Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms.
  5. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 4 to 
5 times. Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to a 1-inch thickness. Using a 2¼ -inch round cutter, cut 11 scones from dough, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place scones
 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops of scones with remaining 1 tablespoon cream.
  6. Bake until edges of scones are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.
