Having used craisins for a favorite salad of mine, I now have a huge bag of craisins I don’t want to go to waste. With a little creativity and search through the cupboards I decided to make scones today.
I found this recipe by doing a simple Google search and looking at a few recipes. The one I used originates from Martha Stewart’s website; I made a few changes. The reason I chose this one was because I wanted the sugar topping. Here are the ingredients you will need:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
- 5 tablespoons sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for topping
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 2/3 cup (plus 1 tablespoon) evaporated milk
- 1 cup craisins
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a bowl, whisk together flour, 5 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 2/3 cup milk until just moistened. Gently fold in craisins.
On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently, 5 to 10 times.
Pat into a 1-inch-thick round. Cut into 8 wedges; place on a baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Brush tops with remaining tablespoon milk; sprinkle with remaining tablespoon sugar. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
Let cool on a wire rack.
