Recipe Ingredients for BREADS: Cranberry Scones

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup Craisins (dried cranberries)
4 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup buttermilk
3 tbsp powdered sugar

Recipe Directions for BREADS: Cranberry Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, soda, salt, nutmeg, and cranberries until cranberries are well-coated and separated.

  3. Cut in softened butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  4. Stir in buttermilk and blend until mixture forms a soft ball and pulls away from sides of bowl. Turn out onto a floured surface. Knead lightly, 3-4 times, working in more flour if necessary to create a soft, workable dough. Do not over-knead.

  5. Shape dough into a 9? x 6? rectangle, at least 1/2" thick. Cut in half lengthwise, then in thirds crosswise, to make six 3? squares. (I use a pizza cutter.) Cut each square diagonally into halves, making 12 triangles.

  6. Place on an ungreased baking sheet about -inch apart. Bake 12-14 minutes until browned. Cool on rack. Dust with powdered sugar.
