English Cranberry Scones

If you guys have been following me for a while, you know Trev and I bake every weekend. This past weekend, we were swimming a lot and wanted to have something that was a quick and easy grab and eat kind of snack.

Immediately, Trevor said scones. Now, if it were me, I would have said muffin but tbh, I’m a little muffin’d out recently. So, we gave scones a whirl.

These tasted really, really good! A bit dry (perfect to dunk in coffee), a bit sweet (but not too sweet) and the perfect size to eat. The girls love Craisins so they loved picking out the scone pieces that had extra Craisins in them!

This dough is super sticky. You will likely think you did something wrong. You didn’t! Just make sure your mat is well floured and you roll the dough around in it. It’ll get there and end up looking and tasting perfect!
