Cranberry Scones

Cranberry Scones

Easy Scones are well-known as a tea time snack in England. I recommend homemade because they are definitely more delicious. These scones don't contain butter.

Ingredients: 8 pieces

Cake flour
200 g
Baking powder
1 teaspoon
Sugar
30 ~ 40 g
Salt
a small amount
Heavy cream
125 ml
Egg
1
Dried cranberries
as needed

Steps

1. Add the sifted dry ingredients, sugar, and salt into a bowl, and mix around and around with a whisk or cooking chopsticks.
2. Add the heavy cream, egg, and dried cranberries, and mix together.
3. Dust the counter with a generous amount of flour, and roll the dough into a ball. Rotate, and then fold several times while flipping, then make into 2 cm thick.
4. Either cut out a shape with a cookie cutter or cut with a knife. Leave the edges as is so that nice layers will appear. Do not fix the shape.
5. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, place the pieces of scone dough, and bake in the oven for 12 ~ 15 minutes at 190℃. When lightly browned, they are done.
6. When finished baking, put on a rack to let them cool.
7. You can eat as is. Opening up the nice crevices, and eating with plenty of clotted cream and jam is the English-style.
8. Enjoy with delicious tea.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this by remembering the scones I learned in England. I added heavy cream instead of a lot of butter, and I also added my favourite cranberries.
