Cinnamon Chip Raisin Scones
I have been wanting to make scones again and I came across this wonderful recipe; so glad I did because these were great. Not too sweet but sweet enough to eat without adding butter or jam. Kids ranging from 2 years old to 9 years old loved them as well, which is a big thing for me as far as my kids, nieces and nephew are concerned.
I made these this past Sunday morning for breakfast at Granddaddy’s. My dad likes biscuits, but he doesn’t care for big fluffy biscuits. He will eat them but he will take all of “the middle” (as he says) out. Who does that?!

Well my Dad does; I thought I would make these not as thick just so he would have one but somehow he talked my sister into making some flat store bought biscuits. This is a newly added goal of mine now; I’m going to find the perfect biscuit recipe to satisfy my dad, no more store bought biscuits if I’m in town Daddy! J
