Cranberry Scones with White Chocolate – preheat oven to 400 degrees F
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour ( sneak in some wheat flour!)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
Goodies to add:
- 1/2- 3/4 cup fresh cranberries
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 Tablespoon milk
Combine flours, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knifes incorporating the butter into the flour mixture. The result will be course crumble. Add buttermilk. Combine well.
Add cranberries and chocolate. I left my cranberries whole, but you can chop them into course pieces.
Kneed dough on a lightly floured surface 10-15 times. Protect your counters! Cranberries can be naturally staining.
Divide dough in half. Form each piece into 5″- 6″ round circle. Use a sharp knife to cut into triangles. I used a pizza wheel and cut it like I would a pizza.
Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-11 minutes. The sides of the scone should be slightly browned. Once cooked, combine the powdered sugar and milk, and drizzle the top of the scones using a spoon.
Doesn’t cuddling up with a blanket, a good book, and a cup of tea with your freshly baked scone sound enticing? You deserve it. Now relax….
