These scones would be perfect with Rex Coffee in the afternoon for a special treat, or served as a dinner side. The flavors of cranberry and orange pair well together, and the Clabber Girl Baking Powder will ensure a fluffy cake like texture for the scone itself.

Ingredients

  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. sugar granulated
  • 1 tbsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. butter
  • 2 tbsp. orange zest
  • 1 c. cranberries
  • 1/2 c. walnuts chopped
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. orange juice

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 F. In a large bowl combined flour, sugar, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the orange zest, chopped cranberries and walnuts. Stir until just combined.

Add the milk and juice stirring until the dough is mixed. With hands, place the dough on a floured work surface, knead gently. Divide the dough in half and pat each piece into a circle on a greased cookie sheet, about 7-inches in diameter and about 1/2-inch thick.

Cut each circle into eight pie-shaped wedges. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden in color.
