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!
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.
