What Makes Cranberry Scones Special?
Cranberries have a unique flavor that is both sweet and tart. This makes them perfect for baking into scones. The tartness of the cranberries pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the sugar in the recipe, creating a delicious balance of flavors. The addition of orange zest also helps to bring out the sweetness of the cranberries and adds an extra layer of flavor.
How to Make Cranberry Scones
Making cranberry scones is easy and only requires a few simple ingredients. Start by combining all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter, orange zest, and dried cranberries in a bowl. Next, add in some heavy cream and stir until everything is combined into a dough. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape each piece into a round disc before transferring them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cranberry scones can be served as-is or with some butter or jam on top for extra flavor. They’re also great served alongside coffee or tea for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. For dessert, try serving them warm with some whipped cream or ice cream on top. No matter how you serve them, these sweet and tangy treats are sure to be a hit.
