Easy Scone Recipe
Making scones are super easy. Today we made two different flavored scones. These and some delicious apple pecan scones which I’ll post soon. Oh my, so delicious.
How To Make Scones
Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt to a large mixing bowl then the butter will be added next. I always cut the butter into small pieces and place it in the freezer for a bit. Using cold butter is important just like it is when making pie crust or biscuits. Next, add the butter to the flour mixture and using a pastry blender, or a fork, mix until crumbly. Once crumbly, add the chopped cranberries and orange zest. Stir, then add orange juice and half & half and mix with clean, cold hands just until combined.
If needed, add the juice from the orange into the scone mixture. Once mixed, add flour to a clean surface and knead the scone mixture about 8 times. Form a round, flat disc like shape, about an inch or so thick. Cut into 8 equal pieces and place each scone on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper separating each one a bit.
Sprinkle with sugar and pop in the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes or until scones are browned. Remove from the oven and let cool a bit then drizzle with orange glaze and that’s it! Super easy, super delicious!
