Cranberry Orange Scones... Drizzled With Orange Glaze

A festive snack.


Cranberries and Orange
a delicious combination.

These scones can be
 made with fresh, frozen
or dried cranberries.

Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/3 cup white sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup frozen cranberries, (I cut them in half)
The rind of 1 Orange
2/3 - 3/4 cup milk or cream.

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees
Butter or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Cut butter into flour mixture until resembles coarse crumbs.
Add in Cranberries


Add in Orange rind
Add milk and stir just until combined.
Do not over mix.
Knead the dough 4 or 5 times then pat 
into a circle about 7 inches round. 
Cut this circle into 8 triangles.
Place on baking sheet.


Before cooking, I brushed with Milk
to make a crust. (Optional)
Bake 17-20 mins.,
until crust is brown and crisp.

Orange Glaze
1 cup Icing Sugar

When baked and still hot, 
(let cool a little)
I drizzled the glaze on the top.





These Scones freeze well.
