Ingredients

  • 2 cup whole wheat pastry flour plus extra for kneading
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • 7 Tbsp Irish butter chilled
  • ¾ cup Organic Valley buttermilk
  • 1 tsp orange extract
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and zest.
  • Cut in the butter with a knife or cheese grater and mix it in using a pastry blender until it is evenly distributed in pea-sized pieces.
  • Add the buttermilk and orange extract and mix the ingredients together until a sticky dough forms.
  • Gently fold in the cranberries.
  • Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a circle, about an inch high.
  • Using a floured butter knife, cut the circle into 8 even triangles and transfer the scones to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the tops are slightly golden. When a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, they are ready.
