Oatmeal Raisin Scones

My mom makes the most amazing bran muffins. She also makes delicious biscotti. But today I'm sharing her recipe for oatmeal raisin scones. We're having our new neighbors over for coffee so I decided to make them myself for the first time (it's really easy!). With only a 1/3 cup of sugar plus the added benefit of raisins and oatmeal, these are pretty guilt free in the way of sweets. They're also a very "comforting" snack, especially when paired with a cup of tea and a dab of jam.

1 1/2 c flour
1 c quick-cooking oats
1/3 c sugar
1 Tbsp + 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 c unsalted butter
1/3 c milk
1 egg
1/2 c raisins

Preheat oven to 400 F. Stir flour, oats, sugar, baking powder salt, ginger and nutmeg in a large bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Beat egg and milk together in a separate bowl and stir into dry mixture. Add raisins. Gather dough into a ball and place on greased baking sheet. Flatten to a 9 inch circle. Cut into 8 pie shaped wedges. Using a spatula, pull each wedge out to allow 1 inch space between the wedges. Chill for 30 mins. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
