Warm wheaty raisin nut scones. Quick, easy and great with morning tea or coffee. This recipe I've carried with me for years. Taken from The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook and gypsy-fied so I can make these wherever I wander.
4 C flour
3 1/2 t baking powder
1t salt
1 3/4 C soymilk ( I use whatever liquid is available and definitely NOT soy )
1/4 C oil
1/4 C sugar
1 C raisins (optional)
Mix dry ingredients, make a well in the center, add milk & oil.
Stir enough to moisten, turn onto a floured surface and knead a few minutes. Divide dough in half.
Roll each half into a 1/2" thick circle & cut dough into wedges.
Bake on an oiled cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes at 450 degrees.
Enjoy !

They look delicious (and while I do use soy milk in some recipes, it is because some folks [diabetic with presenting heart conditions] I feed should not be increasing their already too-high cholesterol level with the 20mg per cup of 2% pasteurized cow's milk.) I also use coconut milk, almond milk and goat's milk. Psst...but tofu? NEVER! That stuff is NOT real food. Blucchk! ;-)

I tried your receipt! I have a Farm Vegetarian Cookbook, but didn't see it. Thank you for the great treat. I used Fresh frozen (how 90's), cranberries(cut in half, just a handfull) and fresh frozen blueberries. They were very yummy.
Thank you again for the great idea!
