  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 c packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 c cold butter cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1/4 c raisins
  • 1/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/2 c cold milk (I used 2% but whole milk would be great too)


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • Add butter and cut it in with a fork or a pastry cutter, until the mixture resembles very coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces of butter.
  • Add raisins and chocolate and stir in.
  • Add milk and stir everything together.
  • Place the mixture on a lightly floured flat surface.
  • Gather into a bowl and gently flatten into a disk.
  • Transfer onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • With a knife or a side of flat metal spatula, cut the disk into half, then each half into half again and repeat until you have 8 wedges.
  • Gently pull them away from the center, leaving about 1" space between them.
  • Bake scones for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool before serving.
