I have been making scones quite often as they are extremely easy to make. Without having to bring out the electrical beater, I can easily whip up a batch of warm scones in no time for breakfast, brunch and teatime.
The key to the making of a good scone lies in the technique itself. Do not overwork the dough as it can make the scones hard.
This cranberry scone recipe is adapted from Farmgirl’s Cranberry Christmas Scones. They yield a better texture than the raisin scones I featured earlier. When they are fresh from the oven, the inside is tender and moist with a light crunch on the outside. The dried cranberries go really well with the buttery scones. It is not too sweet and would suit just anyone even, the elderly and those who have no particular liking for sweet things. The scones can stay fresh for 1-2 days at room temperature or you can even freeze them for future consumption.
Christmas is just around the corner. If you still haven’t decided what to bake for your friends and loved ones on this coming Christmas holidays, these mini scones with ruby-like cranberries will surely brighten up your holiday table.
