For First Christmas this year at my house I made breakfast. My dad and I are happy with eggs and sausage but my brother doesn’t eat eggs (although he’s the egg cook) and my mom’s not a heavy breakfast kind of person so I wanted to make something that I knew my mom and brother would like.
I found this recipe and decided to go for it.
I chose this recipe because it called for fresh cranberries rather than crasins and I’m glad I did. The fresh cranberries were a little tart (which you need with all that sugar and cream) and I think they kept the scones really moist.
I didn’t get many pictures of the process as I was working alone and had to keep cleaning off my hands to pick up the camera.
Look at all those cranberries!
While the scones were baking I made the glaze. The scones have orange rind in them but no juice, so I juiced the orange and added it to the glaze. Cream, sugar, vanilla and orange juice can’t be bad, right?
As a testament to how good these scones are, I got no pictures of the finished products. I thought we’d eat a few and then I’d take pictures of the remaining ones. That didn’t happen. I think there were two left by that afternoon and my brother and I ate them. So you’ll just have to believe me, they’re delicious and so easy to make!
