Cranberry Scone Recipe

Since I am unable to travel, I decided to create the feeling of being in England by making cranberry scones. Although it’s not the same as travelling, it filled the void for a bit.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons (85 grams) butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cranberries
  1. Whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter once the wet ingredients have mixed together.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the heavy cream, egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. The mixture will start to get crumbly.
  4. Add 1 cup of cranberries or your choice of “fun” ingredient.
  5. Spread the dough on a lightly floured surface and flatten it into a 7” circle. Cut the dough into 8 pieces.
  6. Place the pieces on an oiled or lined pan.
    * You can place the pan in the fridge for 5-10 minutes before cooking
  7. Cook at 400 degrees for 18-22 minutes.

If you are like me and don’t like that this recipe only makes 8 pieces, just roll the dough thinner (but keep in mind they won’t be as fluffy) and cook them for half the time.

You’ll see in the video that mine came out a bit bronze – I forgot to cook them for less time (oops).
