Cooking Time:

15 minutes


Serves 16


  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • ½ t. salt
  • ¾ c. dried cranberries
  • 6 T. butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ c. buttermilk
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. almond extract


Preheat oven to 400° F. In large bowl or food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter and stir until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cranberries. Add egg and buttermilk. Stir until dough clings and then kneed gently 12 to 15 times on a lightly floured board.

Roll dough into balls approximately 1 ½ inches wide. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes until golden brown.

In small bowl, combine powdered sugar and almond extract with water until desired consistency. Spoon glaze over hot scones; let cool for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
