Cranberry Scones Recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup butter, chilled
diced 1 cup fresh cranberries, roughly chopped
⅓ cup white sugar
1 grated zest of one orange
½ cup chopped walnuts
¾ cup half-and-half cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a separate bowl, toss cranberries with sugar; add to flour mixture along with orange peel and nuts. Mix lightly.
In another bowl, beat together cream and egg; slowly pour into dry ingredients, mixing with rubber scraper until dough forms. Knead dough 4 or 5 times, being careful not to over handle. Divide dough in half. Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Shape each half into a 6 inch circle. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Place scones on lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
