Quick Cranberry Scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries or dried currants


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and cream ; stir into crumb mixture just until blended. Stir in cranberries. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently four times.
  • 2. Shape dough into a ball; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Pat until an 8-in. circle. With a sharp knife, score the dough into eight wedges (do not separate).
  • 3. Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Break into wedges. Serve warm.

    The best cranberry scones! A local coffee shop used to have scones that were good, but these are far superior. Thank you for sharing recipe. I,too, am an Angophile, and these are great with a cup of tea.
