Day 51: Cranberry Scones with Meyer Lemon Glaze

Today is a very rainy day and I thought I would bake some scones.  My favourite are cranberry scones so, I thought I would share my recipe for them.  These scones are a must with tea and should be served the day they are made.


2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, cold and cut into pieces
1/2 cup cranberries, coarsely chopped
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk

1) In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine all dry ingredients and mix until combined.
2) In a small bowl, add all wet ingredients and mix well.
3) Add butter to flour mixture and mix until it becomes crumbly.
4) Add milk mixture and mix until dough comes together to form a ball.
5) Divide the dough into 16 pieces and form into roughly shaped balls or place in a scone pan.
6) Bake in a 400F oven for approximately 15 minutes.
7) Let cool slightly and spoon Meyer lemon glaze on top of each scone.  Let sit until glaze is set and serve immediately.
