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.

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!
