Nothing says, "Happy Mother's Day" like some delicious scones!
I made my Mom & Grandma the lemon-blueberry and cranberry-orange flavors for Mother's Day.
It was my first time making scones; it wasn't too hard and they tasted really good.
I packaged the cooled scones in a cello bag, tied with a twistie tie then a wired ribbon and labled the different flavors.

Makes 8-12 servings.

  • Step 1

    Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Step 2

    In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater (I cut off tiny pieces with a sharp knife); use your fingers to work in butter (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in raisins (I used dried blueberries & cranberries instead...see footnote at end of recipe for different flavors).

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth. (I used lite sour cream and an egg substitute).

  • Step 4

    Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)

    Step 5

    Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick.

    Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of sugar.

    Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart.

    Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.
