Cranberry Orange Scones are fluffy, buttery scones that will melt in your mouth. Tart and sweet, you'll be entralled.
I am one of those people that is very easily distracted by the baked goods case in the coffee shop.
You’re with me on that one, right?
So many pretty glazed things, so little time.
There are breads and muffins, cookies and little spongy madeleine cakes -- you can tell I spend a lot of time peeking through the bakery case glass, right?
Anyway, scones are at the top of my favorites list.
Except you have to be careful when you buy scones. Because some scones are like scary bricks that will hurt you. Too much flour, not enough butter, hard as a rock.
I am making it my personal mission to eliminate all the bad scones in the world.
It starts with this recipe. The trick is the butter. And not overworking the dough. You want the outside to have a slight crust and the inside to be soft and fluffy delicious.
This recipe is a great base for a perfectly buttery, fluffy scone. If you eat them hot from the oven they pull apart like those addictive flaky layered biscuits. The cranberries are tart. The orange glaze is sweet. And the flavors in these Cranberry Orange Scones to me are totally perfect for the holiday season.
You can make these scones two ways -- big ‘ol coffee house style or mini (as pictured).
I love mini treats.
Also mini treats are perfect for gifting.
