Whole Wheat Scones

These are yummy!  We put jelly on top of them and they freeze really well.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put in a large bowl:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/4/ teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons butter

Mix all together with a pastry mixer or two knives until crumbly.

In another bowl add:

1 cup raisins {if you like raisins}
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
2 Tablespoons yogurt
2 eggs

Mix these ingredients together thoroughly then add to dry ingredients. DON'T over mix!
Flatten out to a circle about 1 1/2" thick and cut into 8 wedges.  Cook at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

For additional flavor add before baking:

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup fresh or frozen fruit {Press into the dough at the very end}
