  • Scones:
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 ½ teaspoon orange juice
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • Glaze:
  • 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour, 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt, and whisk together to make sure combined. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the 1 ¼ cups heavy cream, 1 tablespoon orange zest, 1 ½ teaspoons orange juice, and 1 cup frozen cranberries.
  • Make a well in the flour mixture and slowly pour in the heavy cream mixture and stir until everything comes together to form a soft dough.
  • Turn the dough out on a clean lightly floured surface and turn it a few times until the dough sticks together in a ball. Flatten out the ball to form a circle about ¾ inches thick and cut the same way as you would a pizza.
  • Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown.
  • Carefully remove the cranberry orange scones from the oven and while they are cooling for a few minutes make the orange glaze in a small bowl by whisking together the 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar, ¼ cup orange juice, and 1 teaspoon orange zest. If you would like a thicker glaze, then add additional powdered sugar and if you would like a thinner glaze, then add additional orange juice.
  • Evenly drizzle the glaze over each scone and serve warm or at room temperature. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
