Easy Raisin Scones

I love scones of all kinds, I love eating them, of course, and I also love making my own. Scones are so easy to make, especially drop scones, such as these Easy Raisin Scones.

No kneading, rolling, shaping or cutting of the dough is required to make drop scones. You just mix up the dough, then using your hands, drop the dough in little mounds of the desired size, onto the baking sheet.

I like to make these Easy Raisin Scones on the small side, about four – five bites worth each, and this recipe yields about 18 smallish scones.

You can make these scones any size that you like, just be sure to adjust the baking time accordingly.
