CRANBERRY ORANGE SCONES

 

  • Cooking Time: 15 to 20 minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons orange zest
  • 1½ cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • Granulated sugar, for sprinkling

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • 2. Place the granulated sugar in a large bowl. Add the orange zest and, using your fingers, rub the orange zest and the granulated sugar together until the sugar is uniformly moistened with the orange zest.
  • 3. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk together. Stir in the cranberries.
  • 4. Pour in the cream and, using your fingers or a fork, stir together until combined. Dump mixture onto a lightly floured surface and lightly knead to bring dough together. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 8 triangles and place on baking sheet. Brush the tops of the scones with the melted butter and sprinkle with the granulated sugar.
  • 5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the scones are just turning lightly browned. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store at room temperature.
