That's all fine and good, but they no longer sell the one thing that I bought every now and then: Cranberry orange scones.
Then Cooking Light printed a recipe for making lower-fat cranberry orange scones. I decided that this was definitely a sign that I needed to make my own to enjoy.
Cranberry Orange Scones
- 1 3/4 c flour
- 2 t baking powder
- 1 t sugar
- 1/2 t baking soda
- 1/2 t kosher salt
- 5 T unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 3/4 c low-fat buttermilk
- 1/2 c sweetened dried cranberries
- 1 T grated orange rind
- Cooking spray
Note #1: Next time I'll reduce the buttermilk by 1 T and add 1 T orange juice instead to amp up the orange flavor.
Note #2: Too much mixing will make your scones more biscuit-y than scone-y. You've been warned.
