Irish Scones

For some strange reason when I feel under the weather I love to bake. Maybe its because fresh  baked  treats  remind me of my childhood.

I decided to treat myself to something  sweet while still  staying on a fairly low fiber diet for next weeks  procedures.irishscones1n

Irish Scones


3 cups flour                         ¾ cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder         1 tsp salt

1 1/3 cup milk                    1 egg slightly beaten

¾ cup butter melted        1/1/2 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together.  Very slowly pour in milk, egg and cooled butter. Fold in raisins.  Bake in a greased and floured 9 x 5  x  2  baking dish.  Cut into squares and serve with butter, cream cheese or preserves.

I used a small  round pan and  cut them into triangles .irish scone2_n
