Cranberry Orange Scones are so good!

My family loves these cranberry orange scones. Scones are wonderful to serve your guests with coffee during the holidays or just about anytime and I think cranberry scones are special and a delightful treat. Cranberries are good for you and good in so many recipes.  You might also like our recipe for bacon cheddar scones.

Cranberry orange scones are delicious anytime!

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons orange zest

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened

1/3 cup sour cream

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped fresh cranberries

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and orange zest in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. In a separate bowl stir together the sour cream, egg, milk and vanilla extract. Stir into the flour mixture with a spoon. Fold in the chopped cranberries and mix. Turn out onto a well floured surface, add flour and knead several times until you can roll out about 1/2 inch thick. You can roll out in a circle and cut with a pizza cutter to make diagonal scones or you can roll into small squares and cut into 2 diagonal pieces for smaller scones. You can even cut with a biscuit cutter if you want and make them round. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and bake scones in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Makes 12 scones depending on size you make them. Enjoy!

Glaze:

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

5 to 6 tablespoons milk, more or less

Whisk together and drizzle over scones.
