READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Veggie Girl NYC

What could be better than sweet, flaky scones accompanied by a nice hot cup of tea? These cranberry-studded scones are easy to make, and are delicious any time of day. From the New York Times Sunday Magazine of 7/13/08, adapted from Animal Farm in Orwell, VT.

When it comes to cranberries I almost always find a way to include more, & did so here by using a very, very nicely rounded measure of them in this recipe ~ VERY, VERY NICE! The 2 of us had no trouble at all in finishing off these great tasties in less than a 24-hour period! Definietly a winner!
