An easy recipe for cranberry orange scones
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.
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.
