Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Work the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers until it resembles a coarse meal. Stir in the cranberries and lemon zest.

  • Beat 1 egg and the cream in a small bowl with a fork. Add to the flour mixture and mix with the fork until the dough just comes together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7-inch round about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Lightly beat the remaining egg and brush on the tops of the dough. Bake until the scones are golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Note: When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
