You say you’re too busy this time of year to bake or make any homemade yum?! Well, I want to share this amazing Fresh cranberry orange scones recipe that I experimented with the other morning. You’ll be amazed at how easy and delicious they are.
So perfect for Christmas time and for gift giving. I mean… who doesn’t like homemade deliciousness such as fresh scones?
I love making scones for breakfast cause I’m not your traditional breakfast kinda gal. Actually, for most of my life I have not been a breakfast person. It wasn’t until my bff’s and I started going away for weekends at B&B’s and most B&B owners had “to-die-for” breakfasts. Then my girlfriends either really liked the breakfasts or were trying to entice me so I wouldn’t miss out.
Then there’s the fact that I always feel like Thanksgiving and Christmas would never be the same if I didn’t have a bag of fresh cranberries to make something divine. I know that cranberries and orange goes well together and so…
I diced some up and soaked them in boiling water to soften them a bit before adding them to my basic sconces recipe.

The final outcome… super flaky, buttery, a touch of tart from the cranberries but balanced out by the yummy delicious glaze. So good!!! Perfect with a cup of hot tea.
*For a gluten free version which are just as fantastic, substitute the all purpose flour with the same amount of gluten free all purpose. I had the hubs hustle some over to my daughter at her school for a mid morning snack.
These will be perfect to wrap up in cellophane bags, tied with my adorable free printable gift tag, and gift away!
