Cranberry Scones with Orange GlazeSubmitted by: POPTART73
IntroductionI am working on a lower fat version, but these are so incredibly yummy. I am working on a lower fat version, but these are so incredibly yummy.
2.5 c. flour (all purpose & whole wheat blend)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 c. craisins, coarsely chopped
1/4 c. margarine - cold & cubed
1 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. sugar
Zest of 1 orange
juice of 1/2 orange
1 c. +/- powdered sugar
Zest orange in bowl. Add powdered sugar & juice of 1/2 orange into bowl and stir until smooth. You may have to add a skosh more juice or sugar depending on the consistency you prefer.
With baked scones on a cooling rack (less messy if you put a piece of waxed paper underneath), drizzle the scones with the glaze. A fork works great. Glaze as much or as little as you prefer.
To store, tightly wrap each scone in wax paper and saran wrap. Can be refrigerated or frozen for later use. Just set out to thaw. If desired nuke in the microwave 5-10 seconds to take the chill off.
If cloves is not your taste, you can substitute cinnamon. Also dried blueberries instead of cranberries will work. Other variations are dried apricots and allspice.
If preferred serve with jam, butter, cream or enjoy on its own.
Will make 8 scone wedges. You could alternately shape the dough into a square and cut 9 small square scones.
