I couldn't rate this yet because step 4 instructs you to "add sugar", but the amount is not stated in the ingredients list, just the sugar to dust the scones. I'd like to make this recipe, but need to find out the amount of sugar to put into the dough. Also, when do you add the nuts and cranberries?
