Scones are a simple, forgiving treat that even an inexperienced baker can throw together easily. Light, flaky and loaded with flavor, these Pumpkin Raisin scones offer a taste of Autumn and are perfect for those back to school mornings on the go.
First lesson in Proper scones- how to add the butter. The trick to a light, flaky scone is not to mutilate or melt the butter. You want tiny little butter “balls” throughout the pastry. While the pastry is cooking, those little balls of butter melt, creating light flaky, rich layers. We use a pastry blender for this.

You’ll Need:
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 heaping tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons COLD butter, chopped into small pieces
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1/2 c. raisins

Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin spice coffee creamer
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400F

In a large bowl combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice and whisk to combine. Using a pastry blender (or 2 knives) coarsely incorporate butter pieces until evenly combined.

Stir in buttermilk and raisins, then knead mixture 5-6 times in the bowl. Overturn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, rolling out to about 374 inch thickness. Cut into triangles and place on baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove and place on cooling rack.

While the scones are baking combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Once they’ve been removed from the oven and cooled about 10 minutes, drizzle the glaze over tops of scones.

These seem to freeze well, not that they ever last long enough to freeze for later!
