Cranberry Pecan Scones-Throwback
Hello everyone! It’s Jo here. I was looking back through the archives and saw this scone recipe, and as today is a cozy snow day, I thought it’d be a perfect time to indulge with scones for tea time.
This a variation of the original, I added fresh Cranberries and Pecans for a festive taste.
To top it all off, I also whipped up a batch of mock Devonshire cream. Yummy! However, I would like to find a good recipe for REAL Devonshire cream. Any suggestions?
Cranberry Pecan Scones
Homemade Scones are so easy to make, if you can make biscuits then you're already a pro at scones! But don't worry, I won't tell your guests how easy it is....
- 2 C. Flour
- 1/3 C. Sugar
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- ¼ tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- ½ C. Butter or one stick
- 2/3 C. Buttermilk
- 3/4 C. Fresh Cranberries
- 1/2 C. Chopped Pecans
Preheat oven to 400 degrees combine the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
Then cut the butter into the flour mixture just as you would with biscuits.
Add the cranberries and pecans to that mixture.
Stir in the buttermilk and gently mix everything until it's combined. Gently pat into a circle on a greased baking sheet and cut into wedges.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 min. or until it's baked through the middle.
Mock Devonshire Cream
And for the Mock Devonshire Cream...
- 8 oz. Cream Cheese
- 1/4 C. Sour Cream
- 6 T. Powdered Sugar
Whip the cream cheese and sour cream until thoroughly combined.
Then mix in the powdered sugar until smooth.
Enjoy on your freshly baked scones!
