Cranberry Scones

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?
