Raisin Scones

These are lovely buttered with a nice hot cup of tea.

4 cups white flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
slight pinch of salt
8 ounces butter
4 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
4 eggs
raisins to taste

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix in butter and sugar. Add the eggs, and gradually, the buttermilk. Add raisins to taste....perhaps about one cup. Knead gently until you have a smooth dough. Place on a floured board and cut into desired shapes. I find a floured drinking-glass works well for this. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 350 degrees farenheit.
