Great for tea parties!! Shape dough into hearts for an extra touch


3 cups self-rising flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup raisins (or summer berrries)
egg whites


Combine flour, cinnamon, and sugar. Cut in butter unitl mixture is coarse and crumbly. Add buttermilk and raisins to make soft dough. Turn out on a floured board and cut with biscuit cutter. Be careful not to handle dough to much or it will make scones dense. Place scones close together on a cookie sheet sprayed w/ vegetable oil. Brush tops with egg whites. Bake at 400 degress F unitl lightly browned (about 10 min) May be reheated in foil. Don't overcook scones because when reheating they cook further.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
