White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

IMG_3883 I’ve pondered putting this recipe on my blog at least 3 other times, and here it is! Seriously, I sometimes invite people over to my house just for an excuse to bake these (some of my friends know exactly those times, hehe). I recently made them for a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) park play date. (For you locals, we hosted it at Kalithea Park in EDH – beautiful, well laid out park if you want to check it out) They were a hit, so I figured I’d post the recipe on my blog so I could refer people interested in the recipe here. =) Simple and delicious!

White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

2 c. flour

1 TBS baking powder

½ tsp salt

¼ c. sugar

¾ c. “add-ins” Chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, etc.

1 ¼ c. heavy cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Pour all but heavy cream in large bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. (I add both 3/4c. white chocolate chips and 3/4c. dried cranberries) IMG_3870 Stir in heavy cream until sticky dough is formed – do not over mix!

Lightly flour bread board and knead dough 8-9 times.

Pat into 10” circle. IMG_3872 Brush with 3 TBS melted butter and sprinkle with 2 TBS sugar. IMG_3874 IMG_3875

 

 

 

Cut circle into 12 wedges and place 1” apart on baking sheet. IMG_3876 IMG_3878 Bake about 14-15 minutes or until lightly browned.IMG_3879 Don’t forget to utilize your little helper! My son is learning all kinds of tricks in the kitchen by being my right hand man. I used to freak out having him sit on the counter, now, he knows the drill. I’m still very careful, but he loves being up close and personal.IMG_3871 Here we are enjoying the success of our “hard” work! =) I love that Percy made it in the picture with us even. IMG_3889

  1. I made these for my MOPs meeting tomorrow. So easy and so yummy! I'm sure they'll be a hit! I'm also excited to try a modification using semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips with dried cherries. So many delicious scone possibilities! Thanks for sharing your recipe. =)
