Chocolate Chip-Cranberry Scones

My daughter started making these as a "healthy" alternative to cookies since we seem to like cookies of any kind. I've never been able to eat just one, so this recipe seemed perfect for us. —Nichole Jones, Idaho Falls, Idaho

    I think these are great! They are light, rather than dense. I substituted a half cup of almond flour for the white flour and added nuts.

    Delicious! I brushed the top with the egg white I didn't use, and sprinkled the top with 1T of sugar. The texture is terrific! Not dry and crumbly at all.
