DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and place rack in middle of oven.
  • Butter or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in the cranberries and mixed fruit peel, making sure not to crush the berries.
  • Add the milk and stir until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat the dough into a circle that is 8 inches (20cm) round and about 11/2 inches (3.75 cm) thick.
  • Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and then brush the scone with milk. Using a sharp knife, score the top of the scone into eight triangles and then sprinkle with the sliced almonds.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the scone comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and then turn your broiler on a high setting. Sift icing sugar over the top of the scone and place under the broiler.
  • Broil for just a few seconds, until the sugar has melted and turns golden brown. Make sure to watch the scone carefully as the sugar will burn very quickly!
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Enjoy!
