This is one of the easiest scone recipes you'll ever make! I've made them as gifts for teachers by combining the dry ingredients in a holiday bag, top with dried cranberries and attach the rest of the directions. Quick, easy, and yummy!


  1. Preheat over to 425 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together. Stir in cranberries.
  3. Add whipping cream, stirring just until soft dough forms. If dough is too wet, add extra flour, one tablespoon at a time.
  4. On a floured surface, gently knead dough five or six times.
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet and pat into 8-inch circle. Score into eight wedges, gently separating. Sprinkle top with sugar.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Delicious, but a little less dense and dry than other scones (which many people will probably like). I used blueberries and lemon zest as I don't like cranberries and used the yogurt option using Greek yogurt. I am very pleased with the recipe anc will try it with different flavor additions.

Yummy! This is a great recipe. I followed the directions as written and wouldn't change a thing. So easy to make and they taste terrific. I'll be making these again. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2011.

So easy and good! I added a bit of nutmeg and vanilla to the batter. Will make these over and over again!
