Cranberry Days by Alicia Street

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.

  1. I love cranberries and this looks like a great recipe to try. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This recipe sounds so easy. I'll have to try it.

  3. Cranberries are a favorite of mine, too. I have an easy cranberry bread recipe my mom got off the Ocean Spray cranberry package. I'm also dying to try the cranberry mustard sauce I keep seeing Subway ads about on TV.
