Fall is upon us, and if you’re looking to get a spicy Nutmeg smell lingering throughout your house, boy have I got a little recipe for you! Today, we’re making Cranberry-Orange Scones, a bit of a jump from the traditional Foodbeast-type product that’s layered with bacon, drowning in cheese and swimming in its own fat — but on an equally delicious platform of its own.
With a touch of slivered almonds, sweet cranberry bits, and a maple glaze on top, this isn’t your normal scone! They are light and delicate, guaranteed to fall apart in your mouth with every bite. Pair with coffee or tea in the morning with breakfast, and you’ll be set.
Here’s the crack list:
- 2 cups flour
- 1 stick Earth Balance (butter, cold)
- 3 tablespoons organic sugar
- 1 1/3 tablespoons orange zest
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup organic dried cranberries
- 2 organic eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- + 1/3 tablespoon milk
- handful of slivered almonds
