You know by now I love cranberries. ( Hence the jam and pop tarts. ) When I saw the recipe for a cranberry butter – I might have done my happy dance. 🙂 And that’s how a homemade butter lead me to bake something I have never baked before. ( Is it weird? ).
I got to think, what would go well with the butter? It would have to be freshly baked so the butter can melt on top. Mmmm… And that’s when I realized I have never made scones before. I have lots of experience making biscuits ( drop and cut out ), but not scones. Let me tell you, those fluffy goodies are so fast and easy to make, you will be enjoying them in no time. Or…. you can do what I did and prepare the dough the night before, shape it and cut into scones. Then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate overnight. Trust me, it will make you jump out of bed in the morning to bake them! Hmm, this would be a great Christmas morning addition to your breakfast, don’t you think? You do the work the night before and in the morning you enjoy the gift-unwrapping while your scones are baking. 🙂
I added nutmeg, as a spice we are enjoying this time of year. But feel free to add any spice you are favoring.
