- 1 egg white (for wash) lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly grease a baking sheet or use parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. In a smaller bowl combine honey, yogurt, eggs and vanilla. Mix this well.
Stir in raisins. With a fork , stir the dry ingredients into the honey mixture until just moistened. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface. Shape into an 8 inch wedge and about 1 inch thick.
