These scones are moist and yummy! What a treat on a cold winter night.
Cranberry Orange Scones:
In a large mixing bowl combine the following:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat or whole spelt flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbls baking powder
Cut in 1/2 stick of butter.
2/3 cup honey
1 cup chopped cranberries
Zest of 1 orange
1 3/4 cups of milk
Mix the dry and wet ingredients until just combined. The dough should be wet and sticky. Turn out on to a floured board and form into a rough ball. Press the ball into a small flat rectangle. Lift the rectangle and fold over in half on itself in order to laminate the dough. Continue to fold and flatten it 5-6 more times. Press into a flat rectangle as pictured below and cut out your scones.
Bake the scones at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. This recipe makes makes about 16 medium sized scones.
As a side note, if you have made my fermented Lemon Cranberry Honey, it is great to pour in as the sweetener and chopped cranberries all in one. If you use it, you can omit chopped cranberries, honey, and orange zest, and just add 1/2-2/3 cups of the fermented honey instead.
