Its a pretty basic recipe, just make sure not to overmix.
Oh yeah, and I also added some chopped white chocolate. I love the combination. mmm-mmm-mmm!
Ice cream scoops are my favorite gadget! They make things look so neat and uniform ( & keep my OCD in check! )
I also sprinkle some granulated sugar on top before baking them. I just love that extra sweet crunch on top!
Look at these beauties. They smell super fabulous too. Try not to over bake them because a dry scone is a not a happy scone.
I wanted to show the middle, the top and the bottom so you can see what they're supposed to look like.
Heres the recipe: (from Professional Baking, fifth edition, Gisslen)
egg yolks 1.33oz (2yolks)
pastry flour 1# & 8oz ( i used 1/2 AP flour & 1/2 cake flour)
baking powder 1.25 oz
dried cranberries 4oz
white chocolate ~2oz
Preheat oven to 400. combine butter, sugar & salt in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Blend to a smooth paste. Add the eggs gradually & blend in thoroughly. Add the milk & mix in. Sift together the flour(s) & the baking powder. Add to the bowl and mix to a smooth dough. Add the cranberries and chocolate just until mixed in. Drop mounds onto parchment-lined sheet pan, ( I didnt have any, it was fine- or you can use a silpat). Bake until golden brown and slightly firm to the touch.( probably about 15mins) Let cool for 5 minutes on pan before removing.
I highly recommend these, they're amazing. They're not too sweet and when you bite into a cranberry piece as well as a white chocolate piece.......heavenly!!
I welcome all comments and i'd love to see pics if anyone is tempted to bake them.
