Cranberry Scones

3 Dec

20130311-153946.jpgWoke up too damned early on this Sat morning and couldn’t go back to bed, so decided to make cranberry scones. Adapted from the Joy of Baking recipe. Super duper amazing, and just what I needed this morning. Rafe woke up as it was baking (maybe he smelled it?)…


  • 2 c flour
  • 1/3 c sugar (I used Splenda sugar blend)
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c cold butter
  • 1 1/2 c fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 c skim milk
  • almond slivers to decorate


  • Preheat to 400
  • Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, whisk until thoroughly mixed
  • Cut butter into small chunks and mix into the flour mixture. I used my hands, but try not to work it too much since you don’t want the butter to melt. Consistency should be coarse.
  • 20130311-153837.jpgStir in cranberries, but try not to break any of them! Then stir in milk until it keeps together, but don’t over-mix.
  • Flatten into a rectangle on a floured surface. Cut into 8 triangles, cover in almond slivers. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 min.


Doesn’t have that much butter in it, so you can feel free to add butter on it after it has baked… đŸ™‚
