Heat oven to 400 degrees. In medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and orange peel. Cut 1/3 C. butter into flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Stir in raisins, 1 egg and just enough half and half so dough leaves sides of bowl. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead lightly 10 times. Roll into 9 inch circle; cut into 12 wedges - or cut with cookie cutter. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Immediately remove from cookie sheet.

In a small bowl combine orange butter ingredients. Serve with scones.
