Preheat the oven to 450°.
Combine milk and egg.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. With a pastry cutter or two forks, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add raisins, then the milk and egg combination.
Mix quickly with a fork until dough clings together.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead very lightly 8 or 10 times (gathering it together more than kneading).
Place the dough on a floured surface, sprinkle lightly with flour and gently roll out or pat into a sheet 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 2-inch rounds.
Place on baking sheet lined with parchment. Brush the tops with milk and
sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Serve warm, and split, with lots of butter and jam.
Yields 12 scones.
