Skinny Cinnamon Raisin Scones

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp cold butter
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup raisins (microwave them with a teaspoon of water to plump)
For glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. fat-free milk
  • Just a splash of vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Cut in cold butter, using a pastry cutter or two knives, until mixture is in coarse crumbs.  Add in milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and slightly beaten egg and mix until blended.
Lay dough out on a lightly floured surface and add in raisins, kneading dough just a few times to combine.  Then form dough into a disc.  Using a pizza cutter (because that's all I had), slice dough into 12 equal pieces.  Bake for about 15 minutes and allow to cool.

Meanwhile, whisk together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth and then drizzle over cooled scones.  Enjoy!
