I made scones this morning. Something that I have always wanted to do. Thanks, Annie, for providing me with the recipe. They turned out great! Here is the recipe with visuals:
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Baking Time: 15 minutes
2-1/2 cups flour
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup butter
1 cup cranberries (fresh or dried)
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon warm water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Baking Equipment Needed
Large Mixing bowl Pastry cutter or fork 2 un-greased baking sheets or scone pans (see below)
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Mix together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Step 3: Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until it resembles course crumbs. (First time to use my pastry cutter)
Step 4: Stir in cranberries.
Step 5: Add sugar and buttermilk until just blended.
Step 6: Divide dough in half; roll each portion into an 8-inch circle, about 1/2 inch thick, on a lightly floured surface. (hahaha...I seriously used a ruler!)
Step 7: Cut each portion into 8 wedges; arrange wedges on un-greased baking sheets or in scone pans. Repeat with other half of dough.
Step 8: Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool.
You can glaze, but I didn't.
Eat with coffee or tea! Enjoy.
