Preparation

Step 01

For the cranberry orange scones

  • To prepare cranberry orange scones first heat the oven to 190°C (170° fan) gas 5.
  • Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  • Whisk together the sugar, orange zest and juice, buttermilk, vanilla and egg until blended.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and stir in the salt.
  • Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the cranberries and thyme, then add the egg mixture to form a soft, slightly sticky dough.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.
  • Roll or pat out about 1 cm thick. Cut into rounds with a floured cutter.
  • Lightly knead together the trimmings and cut out more rounds. Place well apart on the baking trays.
Step 02

For the citrus glaze

  • Stir together the sugar and orange juice until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Brush the glaze over the scones and bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden.
  • Cool the cranberry orange scones on the baking trays for a few minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
