How to Make CRANBERRY ORANGE SCONES

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • 6Mix together powdered sugar and orange juice into a glaze; drizzle over scones. Separate scones and serve warm.
