Since moving into our new home last December, the Dr and I have been buying scones at our little neighbourhood bakery. Our habit was getting to be quite expensive so last weekend I bought a bag of white chocolate chips and decided to try and make some of my own.

These little gems are perfectly flaky and full of white-chocolate and cranberry goodness. If you are fan of scones, or just want to try something new, here's the recipe -

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips or pieces
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons half-and-half or light cream


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 2. Mix together butter, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • 3. Add cranberries, white chocolate chips, beaten egg and cream. Mix until dough forms.
  • 4. Knead dough for 2 minutes on a lightly floured surface.
  • 5. Roll into a log (desired thickness) and cut 8 rounds with a sharp knife
  • 6. Transfer the rounds to gently oiled (cooking spray works best) baking sheet
  • 7. Bake 14-20 minutes or until golden brown.
