Blogmas Bonus – Cranberry Scones
Hello and Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and Happy Holidays to everyone.
Back in November when I was meticulously planning each and every Blogmas post, I asked my sister to do a guest post on something sweet and easy to make. I told her what daybI was thinking of putting it up and told her to get back to me.
Well she did. Yesterday. But I digress. Better late than never.
This recipe is taken from our favourite online baker Stephanie fron Joy of Baking (I have referenced her more than a few times)
Since this is Kristine’s post I will present it the way she did.
2 cups of flour
1/3 cup of white sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of unsalted butter
2/3 cup of fresh cranberries
2/3 cup of milk
She left out the candied fruit and the almonds listed in the original recipe.
Preheat oven to 400F (200C) and butter or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk dry ingredients then cut butter in. Use a pastey blender of you have one if not use forks or knives creating course crumbs.
Add the cranberries and gently mix
Add milk and stir careful not to overmix
On a floured surface knead dough four times then form a circle about 7 inches (18 cm) in diameter.
Cut it into 8 triangles and brush top with milk.
Bake for 20 minutes or until crust is brown.
My sister gave these to some of her cowokers for Christmas. They make great gifts or a light dessert to have with coffee after all the heavy Christmas dinner.
Enjoy and have an awesome day!
