Orange Raisin Scones

A baking fetish has overtaken my apartment, with sweet scents wafting through the kitchen.  This recipe was a lucky find, easily missed in tiny 8-size font on the back of a raisin container.  But after eating nearly the entire batch straight off the pan, my roommate and I agreed it was a keeper.
Orange Raisin Scones
Recipe from "ShurFine Natural Raisins" box.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
2 Tbsp. orange zest (or more!)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted Butter, chilled
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup sour cream
1 egg

Whisk flour, half of sugar, orange zest, baking powder, and salt in large bowl.
Add butter and cut into flour mixture with pastry blender, or blend in food processor for 10 second pulses; mixture should resemble corn meal.  Add raisins.

Whisk sour cream and egg in small bowl.  Add to flour mixture and toss until moist clumps form.
Pour flour mixture onto lightly floured surface and gently knead until dough comes together.  Divide dough into small circles or triangles.  Sprinkle with remaining sugar and cinnamon; press into dough so that it sticks.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.  Makes 12-16.
How was your weekend?

What wonderful scones! I wish I could eat one through my computer screen. :)

My weekend was fun! I ran outside and ate lots of vegetables and went to dinner with a friend!

I love scones! They're great for company. :) I bet they would taste delicious with craisins instead of raisins too!
