Raisin Oatmeal Scones

The biggest way to save money in your food budget is to make breakfast. And I'm not talking about popping Eggos in the toaster. Breakfast can be the cheapest meal of the day. Schedule some time over the weekend to make a batch of muffins or these yummy scones. And just so you know I have substituted raisins for dried cranberries and dried blueberries and they always come out fantastic!
And remember....breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup sour milk (milk with 2 teaspoons of vinegar added)
  • 1 egg beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients, cut in butter and raisins. Stir in enough sour milk just to moisten. Divide the dough in half. Flour hands and pat dough into 2 circles on a greased cookie sheet about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into bars or squares. Bake 10 minutes. Brush on egg and then bake until golden brown.
Serve with honey or jam.
