One of the things I love most about Christmas is the food. Let's be honest, it's what most people enjoy about Christmas. I love how the whole house smells like meat, spices and baking. Today I bring you something a little different, a recipe for Cranberry Orange Scones. So perfect with a cup of tea on a crisp winter's day!
- 2 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/3 cup sugar (or to taste)
- 1 tablespoon Baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter cut into pieces
- Zest of 1 orange
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup to 2/3 cups milk
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus 2 tbsp
- 4 tsp freshly squeezed orange juice
Preheat the oven to 200 and line a baking tray with non-stick paper. In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and orange zest. With the tips of your fingers, rub in the cold butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Yum yum! I urge you to give these a try, you won't regret it.
