Cranberry Cream Scones recipe

These fruit-filled, tart scones are great for the holidays. Fresh cranberries pack a sour punch that’s balanced by the sweet cream batter.

Ingredients:

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar, plus extra, for dusting
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cloves
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup heavy cream
¾ cup fresh cranberries
1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

2) In a large bowl, soft together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cloves. Using a pastry blender, cut butter in until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Add cream and cranberries; mix until just combined.

3) Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead until dough just forms, about 5 times. Roll into a 6 or 7-inch circle; place on baking sheet and cut into 6 wedges. Brush the top of dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake until light golden, 15 to 17 minutes.

Something is wrong with the recipe. It needs more flour or less cream. Ended up making muffins.
