Scotch Scones

Recipe by  

"These were originally made by my Granny and are slightly sweeter and flatter than most scones. They are easy to make too - the no bake method allows me to make these on the hottest days of summer, which make them my family's favorite camping treat."

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter by rubbing the mixture between your fingers until the mixture is fine and crumbly; stir in the raisins. In a small bowl, mix together the egg and milk; mix with dry ingredients to form a soft dough.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Dip cutter into flour, and stamp out scones. You may need to re roll the dough to get 12.
  3. Heat dry non-stick griddle over medium heat. Cook each side of the scone until slightly raised and golden brown in color. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Good recipe! I too baked them in the oven although I did 350 for about 20 minutes. I also used half and half for a richer scone instead of milk and used dried cherries! Rolled them out and cut them with a round cutter for a more traditional look! Easy to make!

Very good! Just sweet enough, but not overly. Be careful cooking them in the skillet in you have a gas stove- you'll want them thin and the heat very low. For the sake of experimentation, I also baked a few in the oven- I liked them better from the skillet. Also, they (technically) should be called Scottish, as Scotch is a drink, not a people. :-)

This recipe is amazing - my husband doesn't like raisins, so we usually omit them, but keep the rest of the recipe ingredients "as is". We always cook in the oven, though, rather than on stovetop for about 20minutes at approximately 375F.

Makes lovely, moist scones. I used only half a cup of sugar, and they were plenty sweet enough, even for a sugar lover like me. I tried cooking half of them on the stove top, and half of them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes, and they both turned out quite well, although the ones cooked in the oven were a little bit drier. Either way, the best scone recipe I have found so far.

Yummy! This is the best scone recipe I have tried. The ones at the store are so sweet but most of the recipes I have found are so dry and tasteless. I tried several different kinds - plain, chocolate chip, and my favorite...blueberry with orange zest.

These just came out of the oven and I've already eaten two!!! they're delicious!! I cooked them in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes, like another user. Also, I had to use margarine since I didn't have enough butter. Next time I'll make sure I have butter on hand...and there were absolutely be a next time!!!

I loved this recipe and will definitely make again. My family ate it up right away. I followed the recipe almost exactly, cooking on the stove as directed, and was surprised at how well they came out after other reviewers suggested baking in the oven. The only change I made was to substitute soymilk for milk.
