Cranberry-Orange Scones

Posted in Breakfasts, Desserts by janet @ the taste space on November 20, 2009

I love when I discover new foods. It isn’t that I don’t know about cranberries because I love dried cranberries, but I must confess that I had never bought fresh cranberries before.  I am not sure what took me so long, though, because they are delicious. They are a bit tart but cut the sweetness in whatever dish you are making. This is the first recipe with fresh cranberries that I will share. It is a nice, light scone recipe with orange and fresh cranberries. I liked how it used buttermilk instead of cream.  It was adapted from Bon Appétit  (November 1998) based on the comments from epicurious. My only further tinkering would be to chop the fresh cranberries in bigger chunks to get big bursts of tartness. Scones are best straight from the oven, but these were still good as leftovers, if they manage to last that long.

This is my entry to this week’s Weekend Herb Blogging hosted by Winnie at Healthy Green Kitchen and here is the wrap-up.
