Cranberry Orange Scones

These yummy scones can be made ahead and just waiting for the party to get started! 


The white vanilla drizzle on top of these scones puts them over the top in yumminess!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 cup white vanilla baking chips
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
Directions

Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl, then mix.

Cut in your butter and incorporate until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup of the baking chips, the orange peel, dried cranberries, egg and half-and-half until a soft dough forms.

On a lightly floured board, knead the dough for about 5 seconds or until smooth. Divide the dough in half. Pat each half into a round, about 1/2 inch thick.

Cut each round into 8 wedges.

On an ungreased baking sheet, place wedges 1 inch apart. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup baking chips in a resealable plastic bag and seal. Microwave on high 1 minute. Press the bag until chips are smooth. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag and squeeze to drizzle the melted chips over the scones.

Serve warm or cooled.
