My recipe for oatmeal raisin scones came from How to Bake by Nick Malgieri. It called for using the food processor, usually not my favorite. They're easy enough to use, of course, but they're such a pain to clean.
Malgieri advises against adornment but my wife preferred hers with butter. We did have an interesting discussion about the proper pronunciation of scone. It's "skoʊn" in American English but more commonly "skɒn" in British English.
Fall rolls quickly once we pass the foliage peak.
