There are so many wonderful foods to eat this time of year, but one of my favorites is cranberries. They’re like a harbinger of the holiday season and bring to mind days of feasts and family and fun.
They’re high in vitamin C and disease-fighting antioxidants. And I love their color!
But you don’t have to wait for the traditional Thanksgiving cranberry sauce.
Here is a simple and fast recipe for Cranberry Scones.
2 cups flour
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 stick butter, cold and diced
1 medium egg
¼ cup milk
¾ cup cranberries
Preheat oven at 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and powder.
Cut in the butter.
Beat the egg and add it to the mix, then stir in the milk.
Add the cranberries and toss to spread through the batter.
Spread mixture on baking sheet and cut into squares or triangles. Keep them about ½ inch thick. Makes about eight.
Bake 25 minutes.
These are great with cream cheese and a cup of hot chocolate.
