What do I like about these scones? They are buttery, crumbly, moist and my kitchen smells like Christmas as they bake. The addition of orange zest + cranberries = smell of Christmas time.
This is a one bowl recipe and mixing was done using hands, therefore washing up afterwards was kept to a minimal. The scones can be made ahead and freezes well.
As the ingredients are simple, using good, quality butter and cream is vital. Good quality ingredients will result in a good bake and delicious scones.
