Cut 3 Tablespoons butter into flour mixture until coarse, make a well in
center, and pour in buttermilk. Add raisins. Mix lightly.



 Turn onto lightly floured board and knead 8 times.

Feb. 12 I ordered from amazon.com  3 things, a coffee pot, which they
promptly delivered, but they said the  book and a telephone would not to
arrive until March 23-28.  No explanation.  So, actually I got it a week
early -- tee hee!
The box actually was an amazon.com box -- go figure!
