Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons sugar

3 large eggs

1/3 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup raisins

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sift together the flour and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add the 1/4 cup sugar, beating until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, then add the flour mixture and the buttermilk. Sprinkle the raisins over the dough and gently fold them in. Using an ice-cream scoop, place mounds of dough on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve the scones warm, with softened butter and preserves.
