Max and I go WAY back...like all the way to kindergarten. Now that we are in college together, we get together fairly often to try out different restaurants in Madison or make our own dinner. Last year, when I had an apartment, I cooked dinner all the time and I would invite Max over. This year, we have a chef for my house and so I have not spent as much time with substantial meals. Instead, I do a lot of baking. However, on the weekends there is no chef and I have to figure out something else for food. I can't wait to see what Max cooks up tonight. I, of course, offered to do dessert and since the last batch of scones came out so great, I think I am going to try another!
This time, per request of Max, I am going to make some cranberry-orange scones and since I have some lying around, I am going to throw in a white-chocolate glaze! I can't wait for this amazing dinner...yum!
Cranberry Orange Scones
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp orange extract
1 1/4 cups half and half
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
2 tbsp milk
|Roll out the dough|
|Right out of the oven|
2. Mix half and half with the orange extract
3. Pour half and half mixture into the dry ingredients and combine with a fork. Do not over mix. Add in the cranberries. The mixture should be dry so add some flour if necessary.
4. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured service and slice into wedges.
5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 13-15 minutes. While baking, melt the white chocolate in the microwave and stir in the milk. When scones are done, drizzle glaze over the scones.
