Cranberry Orange Scones

Cranberry Orange Scones

Apr 01, 2021Jackie Silva
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • ½ cup oat milk or regular milk
  • 1 cup Rotten Fruit Freeze Dried Cranberries
  • Orange zest


  1. Rehydrate cranberries in a bowl of water for ~2-3 hours.
  2. Make sure butter is out of the fridge to soften.
  3. Preheat oven to 375ºF
  4. Combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt) in large mixing bowl.
  5. Add in milk and butter until dough is formed. Drain cranberries. Mix in re-hydrated cranberries and orange zest until cranberries are evenly distributed. Okay to use your hands, but don’t overwork the dough. It will be a little crumbly.
  6. Separate dough into two batches, and make each into a disc shape, about 1 ½ inch thick. Cut each disc into six triangles (like a pizza). Try to tuck cranberries into the dough if they are exposed.
  7. Place the triangles onto a greased baking sheet. For a little flourish, brush milk on the top of the scones and sprinkle pinches of sugar over them. Bake 14-18 minutes until tops are golden brown. (Keep an eye on them, the bottoms can burn before the tops get very much color, depending on the oven).
  8. I like to serve these warm, cutting them in half with butter on top. They also keep well, and can be reheated in the microwave for a future afternoon tea or breakfast.
