Cranberry Orange Scones

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage by the Sea. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. Shall we have a little tea.

It’s a beautiful morning on the Oregon coast. A little cloudy and misty…perfect for scone baking. Here is an easy yummy recipe for you!

 

Cranberry 🍊 Orange Scones

Makes 8 large scones

2 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar & and extra Tbsp for sprinkles

1 t baking powder

1/4 baking soda

1/2 salt

1 stick butter (cold)

3/4 cup dried cranberries

zest of 1 orange

1/2 cup milk

1 large egg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

 

By hand, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Grate the butter into the flour mixture on the large holes of a grater. Using your fingers work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles a coarse crumb. Stir in dried cranberries and the zest.

In another bowl, whisk the milk and egg until smooth.

Using a fork, stir egg/milk mixture in flour mixture until a dough forms.

Empty the dough onto a well floured surface and knead briefly so that it come together. Pat down to form a large flattened disk. Using a sharp floured knife or pastry cutter cut the dough into 8 triangles. Place these on a lined baking tray allowing space in between each. Sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of sugar over the top surface of the scones.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Serve this warm out of the oven with your choice of topping.

Enjoy your day!

I’m off to enjoy mine. I have a spa appointment today!

Sea Ya!😘
