White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

I snagged this recipe from my friend, Brittney and I think it’s about the best scone recipe I’ve tried!  So easy to make and the scones just come out beautifully!  You can add any ingredient to your scone, I chose cranberry and white chocolate and it was simply delicious!  Great for afternoon tea or brunch with friends.  Add some lemon curd, fresh whipped cream and jam and you’ve got a party!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 cup of white chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Mix the egg and milk in a small bowl, and stir into flour mixture until moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly.
  4. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round.
  5. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
