2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 eggs well beaten
1/4 cup milk or 1/2 and 1/2 or cream
1/2 cup raisins or chopped almonds or choc. chips or cinnamon chips or chopped dried fruit , etc.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together
Cut in butter with pastry cutter or 2 knives
Mix eggs with milk and add to dry ingredients
Do Not over mix
Add raisins or other ingredients
Drop by spoonfuls onto un-greased sheet cake pan or onto parchment paper (my preferred method), or Press into 2 very lightly greased pie pans (I use glass)
Bake 375 for 14 to 15 minutes
Brush tops with butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar
Can be frozen and reheated briefly, but never as good as fresh.
