1/2 t salt
8 TBS butter
1/2 c raisins, currants, dried cranberries or other dried fruit
1/2 c sour cream
1 large egg

Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Cut in butter in small pieces using a pastry knife, fork, or even with your hands. Mix until dough is crumbly mixture. Add raisins, sour cream, and egg. Stir until blended. Knead with hands until dough is evenly mixed.
Grease a round 8×8 or 9×9 pan and spread dough evenly on bottom. Cut into 8 slices. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 400 for 15 minutes.

Another All-Recipes find with great reviews. These scones were moist and delicious and not too sweet. Another hit at Jaclyn’s baby shower!
