    Annacia's Note:

    Golden raisins are the featured fruit in these tender, tasty scones, made with good-for-you white whole wheat flour. Substitute the dried fruit of your choice, for the raisins and/or the nuts; use a generous 2 cups of whatever fruit/nut combination you choose.

      These scones were yummy indeed. Loved the addition of the white whole wheat flour and brown sugar. I only put 1/2 cup of butter and used dates and mini-chocolate chips. I didn't put the wash on the tops, just sprinkled the tops with coarse raw sugar.
