Cranberry Scones

Cranberry Scones

Cranberry Scones are so simple yet delightfully delicious, which makes them my top 5 favorite baked goodies to make. Honestly, is there anything easier to make than scones? They make such a great breakfast and a wonderful companion for tea or coffee. They are such an amazing afternoon treat too. On to of it all, you can use any fruit.

I just love scones plain, with cheese, or maybe dry fruit… You name it, I love it because baked goodies like these are totally my jam.

How about you? What’s your favorite addition to scones?
