Cranberry Cinnamon Scones – these tender melt in your mouth scones are super easy to make and delicious! Perfect for breakfast, brunch or with tea! Yummy
Cranberry Cinnamon Scones
I have a soft spot for scones. I love eating them for breakfast and with afternoon tea. You probably saw my classic English scones recipe from a few weeks back and now I bring you this fall version. Cinnamon and cranberries make a delicious combination of flavors and textures. By the way, you won’t believe what the secret ingredient inside these scones is.
These Cranberry Cinnamon Scones just melt in your mouth! they are so tender and delicious. Serve it with clotted cream, Crème fraîche and some jam for a tasty and decadent treat. They are super simple to make. You don’t need special molds or cutters, just use a spoon or free form them. That’s the beauty of this recipe.
So let’s see how the process of making these Cranberry Cinnamon Scones are made.
We start out by putting all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and then the wet ingredient (aka secret ingredient) in another one. Don’t worry about the cranberries, they are mixed in last.
Mix the wet into the dry and mix until combined. The secret to a tender scone is to avoid overmixing the dough. With a few movements of the spatula you should be set. Finally, fold the cranberries in.
And that’s how you make the scones dough. Looks easy enough right? You can stop now and just bake them off at the last minute or proceed with the process.
Use a spoon to shape the Cranberry Cinnamon Scones and bake off. Caution: your house will smell like heaven for the next 15 minutes. If I could bottle that aroma I would.
