Cranberry Scones recipe

Is there anything easier to make than scones? They make such a great breakfast and a wonderful companion for tea or coffee. I just love scones plain, with cheese, or dry fruit... You name it, I love it! How about you? What's your favorite addition to scones?

Your friend,

  2. Wow those are lovely! really pretty pics! I have a think for scons ever since I went to UK first time. There's nothing better and bigger treat than cream tea - scones with clotted cream and jam. Thank you for lovely recipe!

  3. Sandra, you've inspired me thank you! It's so long since I've made scones (it's just not very well, er, French round here and I miss them!) and your touch of cranberry for this time of year is wonderful. Happy holidays to you!

  4. Those scones look so delicious. Perfect breakfast with some English tea. It's been a while since I made some scones, I can almost smell how fresh they are :)

  5. These look amazing! The cranberries are so festive...

  6. Haha that's true, even without words, your cranberry scones pictures do the excellent job! ;) When I choose muffin, I always pick blueberries, but cranberries have to be with scones! I dream about having tea and scone with you one day! xo

  14. I've never tried making scones. These look delish!

  15. It's been far too long since I stopped by your blog. I adore cranberry scones, and hope to make a similar treat (low carb of course!) for Christmas Day!

  16. Absolutely loving your scones! Cranberries are just the perfect adddition for the holiday season! Dont worry about the short post. After all a picture is worth a thousand words!

  17. I love baking scones too, they are so easy to put together and even more easy to eat:D I must say your scones do look really festive and tempting!

  18. Ooh yeah, the cranberry recipes are coming out...and scones always get me excited. A friend of mine use to make cranberry and white chocolate scones that were to-die I'm sure this is just delicious, too...specially with shortening :) hehehe. I do like shortening...shhhhhhh...LOL!

  20. i thought these were the prettiest scones ever that i even shared on facebook a few days ago :)

  21. I love scones--these would be perfect for Christmas morning!

  22. Please check your quantity of baking powder. I would think that 4 teaspoons would be enough for 2 cups of flour. 4 tablespoons would be way too much.

    1. Oh I see...It was typo error!!! I did wrote with lowercase letters but instead of tsp I wrote tbs, and it didn't catch my eye. Thank you so much, and sorry for the confusion!
