Dried Cranberry Scones

Freshly Baked Cranberry Scones Recipe

Dried Cranberry Scones

*** Scones made with dried as opposed to fresh cranberries.

Ingredients

– 2 cups flour

– 1 tablespoon baking powder

– 1/2 teaspoon salt

– 5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes

– 1 cup heavy cream

– 3 tablespoons sugar

– 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

– 3/4 cup (100 grams) dried cranberries

– 1 tablespoon coarse sugar, for tops of scones

Instructions

– Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

– Mix together flour, baking powder, and the salt in a medium bowl. Combine cream, honey, and orange zest in a separate one. Stir well.

– Work the butter into the flour mixture with hands until it is crumbly. Stir in cranberries. Pour in the cream mixture and use a large spoon to mix until a crumbly dough forms.

– Knead the dough 3 to 5 times until it just comes together on the counter top. Form into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 8 slices.

– Place scones onto the baking sheet, brush with extra cream and lightly sprinkle tops with sugar. Bake until light golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

– Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
