Lemon Cranberry Scones

Well today it's time for yet another great baking recipe.

      Ingredients: 7 oz Flour
      2 oz Brown sugar
      1/4 tsp salt
     1/2 tsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp vanilla powder or vanilla extract
     1/4 cup lemon zest
     1/2 cup turbinado
      3 oz cold butter
     1/2 cup whipping cream
     3/2 oz Dried cranberry
       1 egg
     1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl add the dry ingredients which includes, flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, vanilla powder, and the lemon zest. Add the cranberries next. Then you have to butter cut up into small chunks and slowly add one at a time to the mixture. Next, add the whipping cream. Allow the dough to collect together in the bowl, but do not beat it much with the mixture! It is supposed to be a dough. Before you put the dough in the oven, roll it up into a flat square and cut diagonally to give you your scones. After this in a separate bowl mix the egg with the vanilla extract for the wash. With the wash brush over the scones and top them with a little turbinado or brown sugar.

Now place the scones in the oven for 8-11 mins.
