Before we had kids, I’d spend hours in the kitchen. I still love cooking but now time (or lack of it) plays a big role in what I cook.
Thankfully, a few of my “old classics” still fit into life as a parent. I’ve been making these scones for years, and I hope I’ll be making them for many more years to come!
They’re so easy to make, and absolutely delightful when smeared with butter and served alongside a cup of tea. One of the things that makes them so simple is the fact that you don’t bother with rolling out the dough and cutting perfect little circles. Instead, you simply pat the dough into a round shape, transfer to a baking mat and slice the circle into eight triangle-shaped wedges.
These scones are not only easy, they’re versatile. If you leave the sugar out of the recipe and substitute something like feta cheese or sundried tomatoes for the raisins, you have a great scone to go along with a bowl of soup!
