Dried Cranberry And Orange Scones
It’s another scone post! And I might just do another. I can’t help it, I mean what if you need to serve a variety? What if you have picky guests? What if you’re totally OCD and won’t stop until ALL scone recipes are posted??? Oh right, that last one’s me, not you. But let’s face it, you COULD be the kind of person who wouldn’t stop and that’s what I’m counting on!
I’m really excited for you to try this recipe. It’s so satisfyingly delicious. Cranberry and orange together in a scone is sublime. And that little bit of glaze doesn’t hurt, either. But remember to let your scones cool completely before drizzling the glaze, or you’ll have a mess on your hands. I know, because I’ve tried. It’s too hard to wait sometimes!
OK, onto the recipe. Happy scone making!
Whisk together dry ingredients and cut butter into flour.
Create a small well in the center of the mix, crack egg into the well and add half and half, orange juice and vanilla.
Then, using your hands, bring dry mix into wet ingredients and combine thoroughly until you have a ball of dough. Dough will be sticky. Work dried cranberries into dough and form dough into wheel. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Cut into 4-8 pieces depending on desired serving size. Dust with sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden and scones are firm to pressing. If you find the edges are browning too quickly, place a sheet of foil over top.
