My family and I love scones and these Cranberry Scones are no exception. They are sweet and tart and melt in your mouth!
When my daughter was younger, I homeschooled her. It was, what I consider, one of the best experiences for her and for the whole family. The world was our classroom and we turned almost everything into a learning experience. My daughter and I began something we loved to call, Teatime Tuesday. We would have a pot of tea and a sweet and discuss poetry or the most current book that we were reading. Many times scones were our sweet of choice.
If you have been a reader of mine for a while, you know that I recently made Cinnamon Chip Scones. They have been our favorite scone to day. I think these Cranberry Scones will replace them! Even Big liked these scones, and Big has always disliked scones! I know, who doesn’t like scones?
I want to let you in on a little secret, I am not a good baker! The last batch of Cinnamon Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies that I made, stuck to the pan. Often times I let Big do the baking, but I vowed that this would change.
I have found the solution to my baking problems! It is PAM Baking Spray. There is a little flour in the spray and it makes your scones and cookies slide right off the pan. The cleanup is easy too! The new PAM leaves 99% less residue than butter or other brands. Who wouldn’t want to spend less time cleaning up?
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter, chilled and diced
- 1 cup fresh cranberries, roughly
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1 grated zest of one orange
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a separate bowl, toss cranberries with sugar; add to flour mixture along with orange peel and nuts. Mix lightly.
- In another bowl, beat together cream and egg; slowly pour into dry ingredients, mixing with rubber scraper until dough forms. Knead dough 4 or 5 times, being careful not to over handle. Divide dough in half. Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Shape each half into a 6 inch circle. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Place scones on lightly greased baking sheets.
- Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
