There aren’t many things better than waking up on a lazy morning, grabbing a cup of coffee, and eating an amazing scone. Am I right? (Trick question, I’m always right).

White Chocolate Cranberry scones were a perfect way to start off my morning. This recipe delivers a moist scone with just enough sweetness to fuel your day! Make these, sit back, relax, drink some Joe and eat a scone.

START!

Preheat your oven the 400 degrees

Line a cookie tray with parchment (yields 8 scones)

INGREDIENTS

–          2 cups flour

–          ⅓ cup sugar

–          1 teaspoon baking powder

–          ¼ teaspoon baking soda

–          ½ tablespoons ground ginger

–          ½ teaspoon salt

–          8 tablespoons butter (frozen)

–          6 ounces white chocolate (coarsely chopped)

–          1 cup dried cranberries (whole or chopped, whichever you prefer)

–          ½ cup sour cream

–          1 large egg

–          1 large egg

–          2 tablespoons sugar

In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, and salt. Grate the frozen butter directly into the dry mixture, and toss with your hands so the butter is covered with the mixture. Add the white chocolate and the cranberries and toss in the dry mixture. In a small bowl whisk together the sour cream and egg. Make a well in the center of your dry mixture and pour in the sour cream/egg mixture. With your hand, incorporate these two until the dough comes together, and then stop (don’t over work it).

Dump the batter on a floured surface and form into a large disk, about ¾ inches thick. Cut into 8 triangles. Lay on the cookie tray.

Beat the last egg and brush on the top of the scones, and sprinkle the sugar over each scone.

Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden.

Eat hot or cooled…. Either way it’ll be good!
