Cinnamon Raisin Scones *taste like cinnamon bun*

My weekly treat for work.  Really wanted something different this time and these were just perfect.  Everyone loved them and some people even had two and said they would eat more but didn't want to make a pig of themselves.  Even my son in law, who hates raisins, like these so that's really saying something.
I think I will save this recipe to my holiday collection because they would be wonderful on Christmas morning just out of the oven.   Oh did I say they are soooooooooooooo easy to make.  I used my food processor to do the hard part.

I adapted  this recipe from  here
Cinnamon Bun Scones

Cook Time: 13-15 minutes
Yield: 12-15 scones depending on size
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3/4 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4-1 cup golden  raisins (soaked in warm water then drained)

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
3 to 4 teaspoons milk


To make the scones:

Preheat oven to 425°. Line baking sheets with silicone liners or parchment paper.

In a small bowl, combine pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter and mix with a pastry blender or a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. This step I did in the food processor, so much quicker.  Just pulse  dry ingredients a couple of time without the butter.  Add the butter bits and then pulse until you have coarse crumbs.
Combine milk, egg, and vanilla in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture and stir just until combined.
Sprinkle cinnamon mixture over dough. Gently stir until batter is just swirled with cinnamon mixture.
Drop dough by 1/4-cup portions* onto prepared pans. Leave about 2 inches between scones.
Bake 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown.
Cool scones on a wire rack for 5 minutes while you make the glaze.
To make the glaze:
Combine confectioners' sugar with 3 teaspoons milk. Add more milk if needed to achieve pouring consistency.
Drizzle glaze over warm scones.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and Remember to Find the TIme to DO ALL the things YOU L♥ve.
