Sometimes at my Weight Watcher meeting, my leader, Amy, hangs recipes on the walls. Today there were two up there that sounded interesting, oven fried chicken (still to come) and Raisin Scones. I opted to try the raisin scones first, since I was looking for something sweet to make to have with some afternoon tea (I'm trying to kick the popcorn in the afternoon habit).
It took less time to assemble these than it took for my oven to preheat. Also, I soaked the raisins first in hot water (I like to do that to plump them a bit before baking). Lastly, I ran out of raisins so I did half raisins half currants. They're not bad - light and easy - and at one point each, who can complain. Next time, I may try cranberries with a little orange zest added in. Or the currants again with some lemon zest.
Weight Watcher Raisin "Scones"
2 cups reduced fat buttermilk baking mix (I used bisquick - is there any other?)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all the ingredients on drop onto a baking sheet (mine was lined with parchment paper), into 16 mounds (the middle-sized pampered chef scooper gizmo I had did this nicely). Bake for 10 minutes. Cool and eat. Each scone is 1 point.
