Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, add in the flour, sugar and baking powder. Mix in the raisins.

Create a hole in the middle of the bowl, pushing the dry ingredients to the sides. Pour the sour cream into the hole and crumble the margarine in with your fingers as well. Mix everything together with a big spoon until the dry ingredients absorb all of the sour cream and margarine. Continue to knead the dough with your fingers until the consistency is uniform.

Sprinkle a small amount of flour on top of a cast-iron baking sheet. Take half of the dough mixture out of the bowl and place it in a circular mound on top of the baking sheet. Cut the dough with a knife into 8 pieces by making a plus sign, and then a multiply sign. Make sure to separate all 8 wedges of dough to allow room for each piece to expand in the oven without touching. Bake until very lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this process with the second half of the dough.

    Just made my second batch tonight. :
    This is THE BEST scone recipe I have tried; pretty darn quick, easy, tender, good flavor - right from the oven or when cool.
    For both batches, I used butter instead of margarine, 'cause that's what I had; also a little less sugar, and light sour cream. I shaped the second batch into a rounded square, because I wanted to cut the scones into small squares (for an animal shelter bake sale. Came out great.
    These are so, SO good! Thank you for sharing, grandma Peggy! :

    Saw this episode and thought to give it a try ... love scones and have been baking and eating them for over 40 years. Though this recipe is easy, it is lacking... First, too much flour; I'd use 2 cups sifted APF and substitute margarine for butter for more flavor. I'd add vanilla and/or cinnamon to give it more flavor. These scones are good when hot from the oven; hrs. later not so much! Hard and yuckie.
