   All purpose flour
   
   Preheat oven to 425 F.  Lightly flour baking sheet.
   combine 3 1/4 cups flour, cream of tartar, baking soda
   and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter using pastry
   blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse
   meal. Stir in raisins and sugar.  Mix in enough milk
   to form soft but not sticky dough.  Turn dough out
   onto lightly floured surface and knead gently until
   dough holds together. Roll dough out to thickness of
   1/2 inch. Cut out rounds using 2-inch cutter (push
   straight down; do not twist). Arrange rounds on
   prepared sheet.  Dust tops lightly with flour. Bake
   scones until puffed and golden, about 10 minutes.
   Serve immediately with butter and jam.
