Cranberry Orange Cream Scones

Nothing is better than watching Downton Abbey with a friend than watching Downton Abbey with a friend while enjoying a cup of Bombay Breakfast and eating one of these jolly little scones!

cranberry orange cream scones - The Backyard Farmwife

2 cups flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

3 Tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

grated zest from 1 orange

Pulse in your food processor about 6-7 times.


5 Tablespoons cold butter cut into small pieces

Pulse 6 times.

Add 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Pulse 6-7 more times.

Pour flour mixture into a mixing bowl. Add 1 cup cold heavy cream.

Mix until combined. Turn onto cutting board and lightly knead 5-10 times.

Divide dough into half. Roll into 2 balls. Place on baking sheet covered with parchment. Pat into a circle about 1” thick. Cut each circle into 8 small wedges (I use a pizza cutter) and separate slightly.

Sprinkle liberally with course sugar.

Bake at 425 for about 15-20 minutes or until tops turn light golden brown.

Let cool on wire racks.
