What You'll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (½ stick) room temperature butter, cut into 4 even slices

  • 1 egg

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup of the sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix well. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until crumbly, then stir in the cranberries and walnuts.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the milk and egg, whisk to mix. Add the egg mixture to the flour and stir just until blended.

  4. On a floured surface, knead the dough 5 to 6 times, then place on an ungreased baking sheet and press into a circle about 1-inch thick and 8-inches across. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar. Bake on the middle oven rack for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden brown.

I am looking for recipes to use the cherries from my tree that I labored to freeze for the winter. Was hoping to find one to use in scones. They all call for dried fruit. If I substitute the drained drained cherries for the dried cranberries what would that do to the scone??? I have made this with the dried cranberries and it is wonderful.

I would thaw and drain cherries, cut them up and try in the recipe. If the dough seems too wet, add a bit more flour. Let us all know how it turns out.
