Gather round Hallmark Channel fans! This is my kick off recipe for my new channel where I will be making a variety of dishes from different Hallmark Channel movies and series! This recipe comes out as “When Calls the Heart” returns for a new season. In true “Hope Valley” fashion, I made warm cinnamon raisin scones! Similar to what you would see offered at Abigail’s Cafe or on Rosemary’s breakfast table! This is a simple and comforting recipe you can indulge in all year long!
Using either a fork or pastry blender, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and cold, cut butter in a bowl by hand. Break up the butter and mix all together until you have "pea-sized" crumbs.
Using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir in brown sugar, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In small increments, slowly stir in milk until you have used it all. Dough will be a bit sticky. DO NOT over mix or you will end up with a dry, dense scone.
Sprinkle flour onto a clean surface and gently knead dough just until it's more combined and not as sticky. DO NOT over knead!
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone mat. Get your dough on the prepared pan and gently push down to make a 9 inch round circle. Score into 8 triangular slices. Do not separate slices as they will bake as one large scone.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-23 minutes until golden brown.
Stir some honey into some room temperature butter and slather it on a warm scone!
