Cinnamon Raisin Scones

These Cinnamon Raisin Scones are tender and soft, lightly spiced with cinnamon, filled with plump raisins, brushed with butter, and sweetened with a touch of turbinado sugar topping.

They are perfect alongside a cup of coffee for breakfast or as a small batch dessert!

Cinnamon scones are soft, tender, and slightly fluffy. They are less crumbly and less dry than a traditional scone and they are incredibly delicious, too.
