Layered Jam Scone
Source: Sun-Maid Raisins

2 cups flour
2 tbs. sugar
1 tbs. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup raisins or currants
1/2 cup thick strawberry jam

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8 inch round cake pan.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (It may help to soften the butter in a microwave oven, but it should not be melted until liquid.) Add milk, eggs and raisins; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.

With floured hands, pat half of dough into bottom of greased pan; press dough 3/4 inch up sides. Spread dough with jam. Top with remaining dough; spread evenly. Brush top with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm.

Makes 8 servings.
