Description

I love Starbucks’s Cranberry Orange Scones. When I found this recipe, I was THRILLED that they taste just as good! Plus, it is easy and quick. That is my type of recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 10 teaspoons Granulated Sugar, Divided
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 Tablespoon Grated Orange Peel
  • ⅓ cups Cold Butter Or Margarine
  • 1 cup Dried Cranberries
  • ¼ cups Orange Juice
  • ¼ cups Half-and-Half Cream
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • _____
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Juice

Preparation

Sift together flour, 7 teaspoons sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir in grated orange peel. Cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine dried cranberries, orange juice, cream and egg. Add to the flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.

On a floured surface, gently knead 6-8 times. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 10 wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with milk; sprinkle with remaining 3 teaspoons sugar (OR use turbinado sugar).

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Glaze:
Combine powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon orange juice. Drizzle all over scones.

We love this recipe and have been making it for years. I always make these luscious scones around the holidays and also for a gift breakfast when friends or family need a bit of encouragement.

i made these the other day. i didn’t have any oranges or orange juice, so i substituted oranges for lemons and made lemon cranberry scones. the batter was a little dry, so i added a bit more cream and then brushed them with milk and sprinkled them with sugar. they were delicious! thanks for posting!

Just great! I had some fresh cranberries in the fridge and used those, and it was very good that way too. A family favorite for us.

Light and tasty. Not at all like the dry bricks at the coffee shop. Yum!

These were super easy and SO good! WAY better than the ones sold at ‘that very popular coffee place’. My husband said they’re one of the best things he’s ever eaten and he isn’t into sweets in the morning at all. I did add the tiniest splash of vanilla to the glaze just because powdered sugar can have that …well….powdered sugar taste! The orange flavor in these is terrific. Can’t wait to make them for my BFF since first grade (we’re now 45!) coming to see me next weekend! They’ll be perfect with our morning coffee.
