This is the perfect recipe for a busy morning, because as long as you have buttermilk (you can also fake buttermilk by stirring a tablespoon of lemon juice into a cup of milk) on hand, all the other ingredients are fairly ordinary. You can even mix all the dry ingredients together the night before you want to bake them to hurry things along in the morning.

Recipe Ingredients for Easy Cranberry Orange Scones

1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup walnuts
2 teaspoons orange zest
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg

Recipe Directions for Easy Cranberry Orange Scones

  1. Optional glaze: 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 2-3 tablespoons of orange (or lemon) juice

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cranberry and zest.

  3. Measure buttermilk into a 2-cup measuring cup. Break egg in and beat to combine. Pour into dry ingredients and mix with a fork. You may need to use your hands to make sure all the flour gets incorporated. It is a very wet batter, so it gets a little sticky.

  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat and form the batter into a large patty. Cut it into 8 segments with a knife, but do not try to move. This is only to speed up the cooking process and give you a guide when you go to cut into it later. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-25 minutes, until it is golden on top.

  5. Mix powdered sugar and juice into a glaze and dribble it over the scones.
