Ingredients

2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/3 cup
sugar
2 teaspoons
baking powder
1 teaspoon
freshly grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon
salt
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
3/4 cup
sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
1 1/4 cups
white baking chips

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.

I have made these twice now and my family absolutely loves them. I even used the dough recipe and changed it to a lemon blueberry once. It was fantastic!

This is a good recipe for scones and I have made them quite a few times. Always well received. However, my recommendations are to use orange with the cranberries. I put orange zest in the batter and instead of white chocolate for drizzle, I make a simple glaze from powdered sugar, orange zest and ORANGE JUICE. The combination of orange and cranberry cannot be beat. I have also made them with blueberries. This is when I used the lemon zest in batter and the lemon zest and lemon juice in the glaze.

These are absolutely delicious! I have baked them twice in the last month,,,once for my family and once for a bake sale, and they were a HUGe hit! When I bake for the family, I skip the sugar completely and they are perfect that way for us.

I make this for the cafe I work at and it is a BIG hit! The only changes I have made to the recipes are: Orange Zest instead of Lemon...this gives it more punch. : I use COLD butter and cut it into the dry ingrediants after they are mixed. This produces a bigger fluffier scone. : After the butter is cut into the dry ingrediants I mix the chips and cranberries in, this way they dont "sink" in the scones. I have also experimented and made them larger. Works great and make 8 large sized scones. Also tried a drizzle of powdered sugar glaze instead of the white chocolate and both are very tasty!

Loved the recipe- Made it several different ways- original, dried apricots, dried peaches- . I even substituted LOL 1/2 and 1/2because I was out of cream . All were excellent. Half and Half was a bit less moist. Everyone I have given these to has asked for the recipe. I use it in my cooking class at school too.

i made these, loved them, gave recipe to friends, then lost it. So, in a hurry, I found another recipe in a cookbook; nowhere near as good as this recipe. Here I am, back for this one.

I made these scones for a bridal shower with a winter theme(December wedding). Easy to make and scrumptious to eat!! Several compliments from the guests. I couldn't keep my husband away...he loved them!

These scones are to die for!! The only thing I did different was dividing the dough into two rounds, about 3/4 to 1" thick, making 16 scones. I had to bake longer. Oh my, I will be making these over and over!!

We had a 'Girl's Night Out' Valentine Tea. My daughter and I made these scones to go along with our red-teas, ribbon sandwiches, fruit and pink raspberry fruit dip, etc. They were delicious. I stirred the flour inside my flour bin before measuring it out, and spooned it into the measuring cup-leveling it off with a flat-edged spatula to ensure that it would not taste doughy or be tough. Basic home-economics,...I know. I also added just a tiny extra splash of cream. Those extra little tricks did the job for us. The texture and taste were very nice.

This is only my second time making scones and I made them for a couple of co-workers. These turned out AWESOME!!! Everyone who ate them said there were "amazing" and "excellent"!!!
