Description

These fresh baked scones help you ease back into your routine after the holidays and make for a sweet start to the new year!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¾ cups Sugar (reserve 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ stick Unsalted Butter, Chilled And Cut Into 1" Pieces
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Buttermilk
  • ½ cups Orange Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons Orange Zest, Divided
  • 1 cup Cranberries (I Used Fresh)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar (all but 2 tablespoons), baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, buttermilk, orange juice, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the orange zest. Mix the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Then add the cranberries and blend just until combined.

This dough is quite sticky and will make a very moist and tender scone. Rather than trying to shape and cut it, I spooned the dough into a 9″ pie dish that had been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and patted the top somewhat flat.

Add the remaining tablespoon of orange zest into a bowl along with the 2 tablespoons of reserved sugar and mix. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the scone batter and bake in the preheated 350 F oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

More like a coffee cake to me than a scone. Very good, and not too sweet!
