Raisin Scone and Cheese Scone.

4 C flour
1 tbsp salt
1/2 C sugar
3/4 C tenderflake shortening
1/2 C raisins
3 eggs

Milk (add enough until dough reaches a pie dough consistency

Mix all dry ingredients, add eggs, add milk.

Roll dough out so it is about 1-1/2 inches thick. Cut out using a round cutter (Mamma uses 14 oz pineapple can which has the top and bottom lid removed)

Brush pastry with whipped egg mixture

Bake 15-20 minutes until brown at 350 deg F.

As an alternative replace 1/2 c raisins with shredded cheddar cheese. After brushing you can sprinkle with cheese.

    There aren’t any eggs in the ingredient list, yet it says to add eggs.

    My Father’s Godmother used to bake a sort of cookie and the only thing she used to call them is: “Bones of the Dead”. Have you ever heard of these? If you have, where can I get the recipe? Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
