Cranberry & White Chocolate Scones - Recipe!

I came across this recipe almost 5 years ago and it's still the best scone recipe I've encountered. The base is so great that you can really put anything in it. Try it and I think you'll agree!

What You Need:
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 Tsp. baking powder
1/2 Tsp. salt
5 Tbsp. chilled, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
6 Tbsp. half & half
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup dried cranberries (craisins)
1/2 cup whit chocolate chips

Procedure:
1. Pre-heat oven 400 degrees. Spray baking sheet with vegetable oil.
2. Blend flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and butter using a pastry blender.



3. In a seperate bowl combine cream  and beaten egg.



4. Pour into dry ingredients mixture. Stir in cranberries and white chocolate chips.
5. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead for 2 minutes. Pat into a 1/2" round circle of dough. (May make 2 rounds and cut each into 8 wedges making 16 smaller wedges.)
6. Cut into 8 pie-shaped wedges.
7. Transfer wedges to a baking sheet. Keep the circle together during baking.



8. Bake 14 minutes until golden brown.
9. Brush scones with: (when done baking):
          2 Tbsp. sugar
          1/4 Tsp. cinnamon
          1 Tbsp. milk


Enjoy with some tea or coffee!! Yumm :)

I made these and loved them. I cut them bigger (four scones per circle of dough) and it worked just swimmingly. Thanks for the recipe. :)
