Simple, light and not super sweet…..that’s how I like my scones!
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, chopped into pieces
3/4 cup almond milk
1 large egg
1/4 cup cranberries
In one bowl mix dry ingredients and whisk them together (the all purpose flour, salt, 2 tablespoons sugar and baking powder). With a pastry cutter or two knives, mix in the chopped unsalted butter into the dry ingredients until it is well incorporated. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with the milk and set aside. Zest the lemon and the lime and add that to the dry ingredients, whisking them throughout. Pour the milk and egg mixture into the dry ingredients, as well as one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and the cranberries and mix well together. I used a pizza pan to spread out the dough once I kneaded it lightly and pressed out a circular shape and lightly made cuts on it – 8. This will bake for approximately 25 minutes in a 375 oven. Before placing in oven, sprinkle one tablespoon of sugar on top, as this will help to brown the top a bit.
Scones are delicious with tea or coffee! It’s a great snack or breakfast item that you can incorporate into your daily diet, as they are not full of sugar, but they pack the flavor!
