Raisin Scones

Lately, I bake bread almost every day.

Well, there are many reasons, but most of them are I want to eat or I want to try the recipes ^^. I bake for many years, but there are still a lot of recipes that I never made them before.
Anyway, today I want to eat something else, haha.

But the thing that I baked is close to bread, as scone always be the base for cream, butter, or jam.
Raisin scone that's not too rich (but not dry), so you can eat it with a lot of creams without feeling guilty.

Scone is not hard to make, but you have to keep the ingredient cool and be careful not to work it too much. I always use the folding method rather than kneading as it is easier to control the dough.
This time you can see that I didn't add the raisins at the start, but folded them into the dough. With this method, most of the raisins will be inside, it's the best way to prevent the raisins from burning.  

You can bake it after making it but refrigerating the dough will give you higher and lighter scones.
