Cranberry-Orange Walnut Scones
3 cups cake flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons orange zest grated
1 cup cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts chopped
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons half and half
2 teaspoons sugar
Preheat your oven to 425 and butter a baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix
together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend the butter into
the dry ingredients, using your fingertips or a pastry blender, until
the mixture is crumbly. Add the orange zest, cranberries and walnuts and
toss to combine. Add the milk and juice, and stir until the dough is
rough. Gather the dough together and place on a floured work surface.
Knead gently about 10 times. Divide the dough in half and pat each piece
into a circle about 6 inches in diameter and about 1/2 inch thick. To
glaze, brush the circles with the half and half and sprinkle with sugar.
Cut each circle into eight pie-shaped wedges. Place the scones, barely
touching, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until puffy and golden,
15-18 mins. Yields: 16
