My supervisor and I have a love of baking and baked goods. We have shared recipes since Day 1 and I LOVE sharing our love of food together even more! She served these scones for our Christmas meeting and they were fun, citrusey and delicious!
Cranberry Date Scones
3 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 sticks cold, unsalted butter, cut into small chunks
1/2 – 3/4 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. whole pitted dates, chopped
grated zest of one large orange
1 c. cold buttermilk, plus extra for brushing on scones
2 T sugar mixed with 1/8 t. each cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Take a food processor (I did mine in a mini food chopper – if you don’t have either you can always do it by hand with a pastry cutter or even 2 knives!)
