Cranberry Orange Scones
This is a bit of a different type of breakfast for 2 for Valentine's day if you are looking for ideas. They tasted great.
½ cup flour + 2 Tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon + 2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon butter, to be grated into flour mixture
2 Tablespoons milk or half and half
1 ½ teaspoon orange zest
1 Tablespoons whisked egg
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons dried cranberries, chopped
1/3 to ½ cup powdered sugar
1 ½ to 2 teaspoons orange juice
Mix dry ingredients. Grate butter into dry ingredients and mix. Add wet ingredients. Add cranberries. Mix with hands briefly to distribute chopped cranberries throughout the dough. Put a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Put dough onto parchment paper and shape into a 4-5 by 6-8 inch square. Cut into 3 triangles. Separate a bit, very carefully. Bake at 375 until lightly brown, about 13-18 minutes, depending on the heat of your oven. Let cool on a cooling rack for a few minutes. Mix the glaze ingredients together so the glaze is not too thick, but not too thin as well. Add orange juice a little at a time until desired consistency to drizzle over the scones. If the scones are too hot, the glaze will melt and make a mess, so make sure they are cool to the touch so the icing will be firm enough. These scones freeze well.
