Cranberry Scones

I find Scones are very easier ones to try. Scones are always loved at Home. Last Saturday i decided to make these Cranberry scones for break-fast. A typical English Break-Fast after watching the Royal Wedding! It was easy to make and it tasted Great!! I referred Soma's Cranberry and Almond Scones and Joy of Baking to prepare these Delicious Scones.

Cranberry Scones


All Purpose Flour - 1 and half cup
Dried Cranberry - 1/4 cup
Chilled Butter - 6 tbsp's
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Milk - 1/4 cup
Egg - 1

Dried Cranberry


Pre-Heat the oven to 200C.

Chop the dried Cranberries and set aside. Beat the Egg with 1/4 tsp of water and keep aside.

In a Big Bowl, add the Flour,Sugar, Baking Powder and mix well. To this add Chilled Butter and mix with your hands, the final mix should be like Bread Crumbs.

Now add Dried Cranberries and mix. Add Milk little by little, to gather the dough together. slowly knead the dough and roll the dough for 1/2 inch thickness, with rolling pin.

With the help of Cookie cutter, shape them. place them on greased baking tray with gap inbetween to let the scones expand while baking.

Give an Egg Wash over the scones just before baking.

Bake the Scones at 200c for about 15 minutes till the bottom of the scones gets golden colour.

Once Baked, let the Scones Cool down in wire wrack for about 10 minutes and Serve.

You can avoid egg wash and brush just with Milk.

I made the scones thinner, you can make them thick and serve with Jam.

I Grilled the scones for about 2 minutes, to make the scones crisper outside.
