The Homemaking Party: Cranberry Orange Scones

Hello Friends! 
Hope everyone is having a joyful and relaxing cozy season. I've cleared my schedule this week so I'm just kicking back, making goodies, reading books, and writing letters! If you love handwritten correspondence, check out the New Year Pen Friend exchange at The Victorian Letter Writers Guild. I'm taking sign ups through January 10. 

On Sunday, our worship team had a little breakfast party together and I made these Cranberry Orange scones. I had several compliments and requests for the recipe so thought I'd post it here for you all. Thanks for stopping by the Homemaking Party!

Cranberry Orange Scones

2 c. flour
10 tsp. sugar
1 TB grated orange peel (orange zest)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/3 c. cold butter
1 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. cream, half and half, or milk
juice from the orange (or 1/4 c.)
1 egg
1 TB milk

In a large bowl, stir the flour, 7 teaspoons sugar, orange zest, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs (I use a pastry blender); set aside. In a small bowl, stir the cranberries, orange juice, cream and egg. Add to flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms. Finish mixing with your hands to incorporate all flour and then knead in the bowl six or seven times. Pat dough out into about an 8 inch circle on a greased baking sheet. Cut the circle into 8-10 wedges, stopping short of cutting all the way through. Brush with milk and sprinkle with remaining 3 teaspoons sugar.

Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pan about 5 minutes, then cut through each wedge with a sharp knife and finish cooling on a rack or serve hot. 


  1. I love cranberry orange ANYTHING! Thanks for the recipe and for being here today!

  2. These look (and I'm sure TASTE!) so good! I love the combination of orange and cranberry. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I too am finished with everything and enjoying relaxing this week as well. Christmas will be a simple affair with just me and hubby so lots less 'prep' and 'fluff' than when the kids are home although I'm working on a centerpiece today for our Christmas dinner table and thinking through how to still make it special. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
