Cranberry Orange Scones Recipe

Publisher Photo
Moist and scrumptious, these scones come out perfect every time. I savor the chewy dried cranberries and sweet orange glaze. There's nothing better than serving these remarkable scones warm with the delicate orange butter.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 31, 2014

A tasty treat filled with orange flavour and loads of cranberries. I used milk instead of half and half as it is what I had and they turned out awesome. A definite make again.

My family loves these! I just made them and my mom who does not like dried fruit in anything devoured 2 in quick succession. The glaze was a little bit to powder sugary tasting so I added about .25 teaspoons to it to cut that strong flavor and add a little bit more of an orange flavor. These took less than 30 min start to finish and with my food processor and the knife attachment made it even easier. I will be making these again in no time.

Perfect for breakfast and snacks. I do not make the glaze. Perfect without!

These are amazing! This was my first attempt at making scones and it was a success. My husband has requested them 3 times since I first made them less than a month ago. I followed the recipe exactly, but we skipped the orange butter. So good!

They were yummy but we burded the bottom so I suggest that you only cook them at 350 degrees
