cranberry scones

Postby mercy » Mon Sep 19, 2005 12:03 pm

from the redwoods preview...

Ingredients:
2/3 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt {i use a single serving container of vanilla yogurt.}
1 large egg
3 cup flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick cold, unsalted butter, cut up
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries {dried are fine, too.}
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp grated orange peel
1 Tbsp butter @ room temperature


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat egg into yogurt in a glass bowl. Put flour, baking powder, soda and salt into a large bowl. Stir to mix well. Add the stick of butter and cut in with a pastry blender or rub in with your fingers, till mixture looks like fine granules.

Add cranberries, sugar, and orange peel: toss lightly to distribute evenly. Add yogurt mixture. Stir with a fork until a soft dough forms. {more flour for drier scones, less flour for not-so-dry scones.}

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured board and give 5 to 6 kneads, just until well mixed. Form dough into a ball, cut into 8 wedges. Form each wedge into a ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until medium brown. Remove to wire rack. Brush with the 1 Tbsp of soft butter. Let cool, uncovered, at least 1 hour before serving.

Makes 8 {honkin huge} scones.

{roy would also like for me to add that you can substitute wheat flour up there, and it's still good.}

enjoy! :thumbsup:

I have to agree the scones were fantastic! :applause:

Thanks for the recipe.
Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Ask yourself these simple questions every time you are in doubt about any action.

le bump.

people were asking about how to make these up at the irg, both the entire recipe and the list of dry ingredients (because i bag the dry stuff for ease of prep while camping).

the ingredients are the same, but my approach has changed over time, mostly because i cook them in the dutch oven more often than i do in the regular oven now. looks like the dough gets wrestled with more (because really, is it ever that simple or neat?), the temp is lower, the time is longer, and people jump in with both feet as soon as they're off the coals. none of this cooling business.

and i must give props to roy for cooking them this go round.

i also must go take pictures off the camera. ;)
