This is not how to traditionally make scones but how I make scones. Quick and easy for a warm breakfast on a cold weekend morning. You can form them into triangles before baking or save yourself time like I do and do it after baking. It all tastes the same!
What you’ll need:
2 cups AP flour
1/3 cup sugar
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter (5-1/3 Tbsp)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp sliced almonds
additional milk and sugar for topping
Preheat oven to 400*F. In a large bowl or food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in cold butter like you would when making a pie crust. Add in dried cranberries and milk and mix until it forms a ball.
Pat out on an ungreased cookie sheet into an 8″ circle. Brush top with 1 Tbsp milk. Top with sliced almonds and additional sugar.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and center is done.
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp orange extract (optional)
Mix until powdered sugar is incorporated. Drizzle over scones before serving.
