Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

In a bowl whisk together 1/2 cup cream, egg, vanilla, and brown sugar until combined well. In another bowl stir together flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and blend in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in raisins and cream mixture with a fork until mixture just forms a sticky but manageable dough. On a lightly floured surface knead dough gently and cut into 6 wedges. On an ungreased baking sheet brush scones with additional cream and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake scones in middle of oven 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden.


No special items needed.

Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • Be sure to use cold butter for the scones, as this will help them to rise and stay flaky.
  • If you don't have cake flour, you can use all-purpose flour instead.

  • Substitute almond milk for heavy cream - This substitution will make the scones vegan friendly and will reduce the amount of saturated fat and calories.
  • Substitute coconut sugar for light brown sugar - This substitution will add a subtle coconut flavor to the scones and it is a healthier alternative to refined sugars.

Coconut Scones Replace the raisins with 1/2 cup of shredded coconut and add 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract to the wet ingredients.

Apple Compote - A warm and sweet compote made with apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar, this dish is the perfect accompaniment to the Cinnamon Raisin Cream Scones. The compote adds a touch of sweetness and complements the cinnamon and raisin flavors in the scones.

Honey Butter: This simple honey butter is the perfect complement to the Apple Compote and Cinnamon Raisin Cream Scones. It adds a subtle sweetness and creamy texture that pairs deliciously with the apples and cinnamon flavors of the other dishes.


Q: How long should I bake the scones?

A: Bake the scones in the middle of the oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden.

Q: What ingredients do I need for scones?

A: You will need flour, baking powder, salt, butter, egg, and milk to make scones.

These are great -- we had to make a few changes by using half and half instead of cream of regular flour instead of cake flour -- but still wonderful and enjoyed by all! Thanks for sharing!
