With Tu B’Shevat just around the corner, Tnuva is sharing with you a special recipe perfect for the holiday. Made with Tnuva butter, dark raisins and buttermilk, these scones will turn into a new favorite in your kitchen.


2 cups of flour

2 tsp. of baking powder

2 tbsp. sugar

A pinch of salt

40 grams of Tnuva butter, softened

70 grams of dark raisins

1 egg

⅓ cup of buttermilk for brushing glazing


1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celcius, and line the baking tray with a baking sheet.

2. In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and butter, and knead with your hands into a flaky batter. Add raisins.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and the egg. Pour the mixture over the batter and knead together. If the batter is still a little dry, add a little more buttermilk and mix for a few more seconds.

4. On a slightly floured surface roll out the dough to a thickness of approximately 4 cm. Using an upside down cup or a circle-shaped cookie cutter, cut circles out of the dough.

5. Place the circles on the baking sheet and glaze lightly with buttermilk.

6. Bake the scones until they have slightly risen and are golden, approximately 10-12 min. Place the scones on a cooling rack and cover with a towel to keep them moist.

7. Scones are tastiest on the day they were baked, but they can be stored in the freezer for later snacking, as long as they’re well-wrapped. Serve with Salty Tnuva butter or a fruit preserve.
