Cranberry Orange Scones

These cranberry scones are buttery and dense, just the way scones ought to be. I like to make this recipe for cranberry scones for brunches and special occasion breakfasts.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Stir in orange zest.

  3. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  4. Whisk egg and buttermilk together. Pour into the flour mixture, using your hands to mix until just combined. Add dried cranberries.

  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly-floured surface. Knead several times. Shape into an 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on prepared baking sheet. Bake 18-20 minutes until golden on top.
Makes 8 servings.
