Breakfast Scones

Cranberry White Chip Scones

I admit, I’m crazy for scones.  Once I made them and saw how easy they were and that they weren’t the dry bricks people made them out to be, I was hooked.  These Cranberry White Chip Scones are so festive for the holiday season and would be perfect Christmas morning or to bring as a thank you gift for whomever is hosting the holiday gathering this year.  I mean how awesome would it be after having family invade, cause a ruckus and leave in a whirlwind to not have to worry about breakfast the next morning?  Pair them with a box of seasonal tea and you’ll be sure to get an invite back to the head of the table.

Make them for yourself or your family on a day when you’ve got nothing going on, let them cool then wrap them individually and put them in a freezer bag for breakfast on the go on hectic days!

Cranberry White Chip Scones
Prep Time:
10 minutes
Cook Time:
15 minutes
Total Time:
25 minutes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 6 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sugar
  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut in butter until mixture resembles large crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, combine milk and 2 tbsp beaten egg; add to flour crumb mixture just until moistened. Stir in cranberries and white chips and gently fold being careful not to over work the dough.
  4. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times.
  5. Pat into an 8 inch circle. Cut into eight wedges. Separate wedges and place on a lined baking sheet. (If you have the time, place in fridge for 20-30 minutes to let the gluten relax for higher scones)
  6. Brush with remaining egg; sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  7. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
