Petite White Chocolate Cranberry Scones
25 min
1 hr 25 min


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

2 teaspoons shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in whipping cream; mix until dough holds together. Stir in cranberries and 3/4 cup white baking chips.

  3. STEP 3

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 to 10 times or until dough is smooth. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces; shape each piece into 8-inch log. Cut each log into 4 (2-inch) pieces; cut each piece in half diagonally to form small triangles.

  4. STEP 4

    Place scones, at least 1 inch apart, onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine remaining 1/2 cup baking chips and shortening in bowl. Microwave on Medium (50% power) 30 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring every 30 seconds until chips are melted and smooth. Drizzle scones with melted chocolate.

I don't usually care for scones as they can be very dry, but the other day a friend made some scones that tasted so good that I decided to try making some. After looking through loads of recipes I decided on this one. This recipe is so easy and the taste is out of this world delicious!!! Not a dry scone in sight with this dough. I did all mini scones and only baked them for the 9 minutes as I had read when you make scones they turn out more moist when you undercook them. It all seemed to work just fine and I now have a go-to recipe for scones!

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!
