My dad is apparently a big fan of scones. I started making scones about 4-5 years ago, and I have made many iterations since, mostly for him to try. Not all of them have appeared on the blog, but today’s recipe needed to be seen. I liked it so much, I made it again within a week. And then I made it with a different mix-in that I will share on Wednesday. Part of the reason I like it so much is that it is easy. The food processor takes care of the bits of butter (and you really taste the bits in the final product) and a small bit of mixing takes care of the rest. I made these with the disc method, but the recipe on Wednesday will show what they look like if you just scoop out portions. Both were successful, but the scooping was a bit easier. So, feel free to take the easier way out, especially if you make these in the morning and are a bit sleepy still.
This recipe is a bit healthy (I used half and half instead of cream, and cut back on the butter). You won’t realize it and will enjoy them just the same. If you’re curious, I used dried cranberries from Trader Joe’s and they were really tasty in this. Not tart at all, if you’re worried about that.
