These are positively the best scones I have ever had. Light and fluffy and easy to make. Blueberries work in this recipe too. I put them in frozen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, 5 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in 2/3 cup half-and-half until just moistened. Gently fold in cranberries.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently, 5 to 10 times. Pat into a 1-inch-thick round. Cut into 8 wedges; place on a baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Brush tops with remaining tablespoon half-and-half; sprinkle with remaining tablespoon sugar. I actually use a sprayed scone pan, where the triangles are already divided. To me it is easier.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
