Cranberry Tea Scones...

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Yesterday morning we had a nice breakfast of scones. I woke up with a strong wish for cranberry bundt cake, but realized I didn't have everything I needed to make it. Instead I made a batch of cranberry scones, which hit the spot entirely.


Cranberry Tea Scones

In a large bowl sift together:
2 cups unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cut into small pieces and crumble in with your fingers:
1/2 cup butter, cold

Mix then add:
1 egg
1 + 1/2 cups milk
1 lemon, zest and juice

Mix gently until combined then press into a rectangle about 3/4' - 1' thick.
Cut into squares. Place on a buttered baking sheet then bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

  1. They look seriously delicious - I have a packet of dried cranberries left from Christmas - a perfect solution.
