    White chocolate and cranberries, I haven’t had them together before, I’ll bet the two are very nice together. My daughter comes home from school in just a few weeks, wahoo, and we always spend some fun times baking and cooking together, she might like these.

    My husband loves scones, but I have never tried to make them myself. I will definitely be trying these this weekend. The white chocolate and cranberry sounds amazing!

    These look good. I haven’t really been interested in making basic scones before, but these flavors sound delicious. They pair well and would be good in a scone.

    These sound good. I’m so glad that you put down what kind of flour should be used. Some recipes just say flour.I’m looking forward to trying this.

  9. M.Clark says

    I’m not a fan of white chocolate, I would definitely use chocolate or dark chocolate to make this. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  10. Shannon says

    White chocolate and cranberry is a classic combination, I bet it would also be good with a little orange zest.

  11. Dorothy Boucher says

    Yum! I’ve only had scones at a local bakery, but they were not the traditional English kind. These look delicious with the white chocolate and cranberries! I didn’t realize that they didn’t require too many steps and special instructions! I’ll have to try to make these as an alternate to bread or muffins!

  13. Carissa Joslyn says

    These look amazing, I love Cranberries in cookies!
    Going shopping in a few days, I’ll be picking up the ingredients! Thanks.

    These look fantastic. I’m not really a white chocolate fan so I’ll have to make them with some dark chocolate instead. Yummy. :)

    I love it, this would be a great idea for my next tea party wit the granddaughters. They just love to bake and have parties

  17. Mary Beth Elderton says

    these sound delicious! And they don’t look difficult to make–i somehow had it in my mind that scones would be harder.
