Scones with raisins and lemon zest (Scones con pasas y ralladura de limon)













We really love scones here ate home.
These scones are easy to make, and would be a perfect choise for serving Mom  on her special day.
Serve fresh out of the oven with butter and berry jam !

Happy Mother´s day to all Moms !










Ingredients

3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated surgar
1  tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 egg
1/2 cup greek yogurt
6 tablespoon cold butter cut into pieces
3/4 cup raisins

Topping

One yolk
2 tablespoon whole milk

Note : I addapted this recipe so if you need add some flour or yogurt if dough  is dry.




Method

To mix by hand in a bowl, stir together the flour, the sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest .
Using a pastry blender or 2 knives cut in the butter until is broken down into unevely sized pieces, the largest as big as a pea.
Scatter the raisins over the dough.
 Finally add the egg and  the greek yogurt over the  dry ingredients  and mix with a spatula just until all is moistened. 

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and press gently until the dough clings together in a ball.

Pat or roll  dough into a circle and using a lightly greased and floured biscuit cutter cut into rounds. Dip cutter into flour as often as necessary to keep dough from sticking .
Place  about 1 inch (2.3 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheet.
Preheat the oven to 180°c (360° F)
In a small bowl combine the yolk with whole milk and brush onto scones.
Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. 
Remove from oven and serve warm or at room temperature.

  11. Gloria, Your raisin scones look very nice indeed! We've never baked scones but we do buy them occasionally from a local bakery. Here in the southeastern USA they like things a bit sweeter. Our favorite scones are filled with raspberry and white chocolate or blueberries or strawberries and they have a crackled sugar glaze on them. We butter them with Amish butter and put them in the microwave for 25 seconds before devouring them! Have a great Mother's Day! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  13. Don't even think I've ever seen a scone in real life before. But a little zest must help them pass any test.
