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 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!
