Orange Cranberry Scones

"I threw this together yesterday with ingredients already in my pantry. I think this may be good with some crystallized ginger thrown in there but that's something that I don't keep on hand."

    I have to say that orange and cranberries really do go great together! Especially for these scones. I didn't have orange extract, so I used some orange juice. It was so good, especially hot out of the oven with some melted margerine!

    Wow Dana Wow, these scones are awesome, they rose beautifully, were light and tender, soft and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside and so full of flavor. They were so easy and really quick to throw together. I had them made and baked in less than 30 minutes. Gotta love that. I only made half the recipe and ended up with 4 large scones. They were really wonderful served warm with fresh butter. I do have candied ginger in my house, one of my most favorite flavors, so of course I threw some into the scones, let me tell you, they are out of this world good. I will be making these often. Kudos for your recipe that has gone into my Favorites Cookbook for 2012. Made for The Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Great Britian.


I love trying new dishes. For me, food is a way of experiencing the world without leaving my home, and I'm hoping that as my two sons get older that I can convince them to come with me on my culinary adventures.
