Ingredients

1/2 cup raisins

1 tablespoon Amaretto, or to taste

2 cups flour (all-purpose)

1/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1 beaten egg

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Before starting scones, place raisins in a bowl and cover with Amaretto. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour or until raisins have plumped. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles crumbs. In another bowl mix together the egg, milk, cream and Amaretto. Pour into dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the raisins and nuts. Mix until a dough comes together. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. With a round cutter (2 or 3-inch) cut dough. Space scones at least 1 to 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. With the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream brush each top of the scones. Bake the scones at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes or until scones are light brown in color. Let scones cool and dust with confectioners' sugar.
