IMG_3117

I lived in England for a while in my 20s and fell in love with these bad boys.  Top them with some clotted cream, butter, and jam.  Yes, all three.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup of wheat germ

4 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup sugar

4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons shortening

3/4 cup cream

1 egg

1 handful of dark raisins

1 handful of golden raisins

Garnish:

egg wash

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon wheat germ

1 tablespoon turbinado sugar

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, wheat germ, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well. Cut in butter and shortening. In a separate bowl, combine cream with beaten egg then add to dry ingredients. Stir in raisins. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Roll dough out and cut into biscuit size rounds.

Brush wih egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon, wheat germ, and turbinado sugar mix. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown.

I adapted this recipe.
