Beverley’s British Sconettes

Print Friendly Version Print Friendly Version

My friend Beverley was sharing stories with me about growing up in England.  She noted her favorite goods from her childhood and how much she missed the taste of her favorite British Biscuits made with plump golden raisins.  Her story inspired me to create this recipe.  Hopefully this delicious scone will take her back to the days of growing up in Europe. 

Ingredients:Beverley's British Sconettes

  • 1 box of biscuit mix (I used Jiffy Buttermilk – less than $1 at most stores!)
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I used 2%, but you can cut the fat by using skim)
  • 1 teaspoon of a kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon of water
  • flour


Preheat oven to 375.  Combine biscuit mix, sugar, salt and raisins.  Add in milk and gently fold together.  Dust your spoon and hands with flour before handling the dough so it won’t stick.  Scoop small mounds onto a greased cookie sheet.  If the mounds become sticky, add more flour.  Brush the mounds with egg wash and sprinkle with a little sugar.  Allow to bake for 7-8 minutes.  Enjoy!
