Cranberry Cobblescones Recipe

Cranberry Cobblescones Recipe

My clever, scone-like treats signal the start of the Christmas season at our house. The whole family loves the sweet-tart taste of cranberries sandwiched between tender dough.151;Lori Steward, Duluth, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 2 eggs
  • about 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • FILLING:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. Grease a 16-in. sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Place eggs in a measuring cup. Add enough cream to measure 3/4 cup; stir into crumb mixture. Knead just until dough forms a ball, about 1 minute. Turn onto prepared foil; roll out into a 16-in. x 8-in. rectangle.
  • 2. For filling, combine the sugars, cornstarch and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir in cranberry sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute or until thickened; remove from the heat and cool slightly.
  • 3. Spread filling widthwise over half of the rectangle. Fold dough over filling, forming an 8-in. square; seal edges. Transfer foil with dough to a greased baking sheet.
  • 4. Brush with milk. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over top. Cut into 2-in. squares (do not separate). Bake at 425° for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 scones.
