Linda Anderson, October Bus Trip to NY Gardens
This recipe produces a soft, crumbly scone. I made three round “patties” of the dough in order to make smaller scones.
Mix in bowl and set aside:
2 C. flour
1/2 C. sugar
2 1/2 t. baking powder
a shake of salt
Grate in cuisinart or with a grater:
1 stick of FROZEN butter
Mix in another bowl”
1/2 C. cream (heavy or half/half)
1 t. vanilla
1 C. of dried cranberries or more?
Mix grated butter into bowl of dry ingredients
Add cream, egg vanilla mixture
Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet
With floured hands pat dough into 3 circles and place on parchment paper
Cut circles into 6 or 8 triangles before baking.
Bake in 400 degree oven on medium low rack for 20 minutes or so (slightly brown)
Do not overbake.
Drizzle a glaze on baked scones:
1 scant C. of powdered sugar
3 T. cream
1/4 t. vanilla
Orange zest and some orange juice
