Cranberry Nut Scones
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold butter or margarine (Butter is best)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (your choice, I use pecans)
1/2 cup dried fruit cut in small pieces (I use dried sweetened
1 Tablespoon grated orange peel
l cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
In medium bowl, mix all dry ingredients and cut in butter till it
looks like fine crumbs. Then add your dried fruit, chopped nuts &
grated orange peel. With a fork mix in the cream, just till all
ingredients are moist. Remove to knead about 8 times on lightly
floured surface. Divide dough in half and pat into 2 - 6 inch circles.
Cut each circle into 8 triangles and place the triangles on an
ungreased baking sheet leaving about 1 inch between them and bake
about 15 minutes in 375 oven. Serve with jam of your choice.
You can also serve with Devonshire Cream:
Take 3 ounces of cream cheese and add 4 teaspoons of confectioners
sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well and add about 1/3 cup heavy
cream till smooth. Refrigerate till ready to eat. Place on top of
scone with jam on top. Super delicious!!!!!!
