Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut cold cubed butter into dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or fork until pea-sized crumbs form. Add raisins and set aside.

Mix buttermilk and egg in a separate bowl until combined. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and gently mix until just combined. It's okay if the dough is sticky.

Turn the dough out on a floured surface, flour the top and your hands, and knead it a few times, adding flour as needed, until it forms a 7-inch ball.
