Try this Cranberry Pine Nut Scones recipe, or contribute your own.
1. Preheat the oven to 400.
2. Put the pine nuts in a skillet over medium high heat. Toast until golden. Add the butter and heat just until melted.
3. Put the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl.
4. In a separate bowl, measure the milk, mix in the egg and melted butter/pine nuts. Stir until combined.
5. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour until just combined. Knead lightly with your hands a few times until the dough sticks together. (It's not too messy, don't worry).
6. Pat into a circle on an ungreased cookie sheet. The dough will be about 1.5 inches thick and the circle will be 7 or so inches in diameter.
7. Using a very sharp knife, cut into wedges. Distribute these wedges around the cookie sheet.
8. Bake for 13 minutes or until lightly golden.
These freeze well.
mari_neves 3m agoThis recipe is amazing! Really quick and easy. Made it without the pine nuts and it was still delicious and not crumbly as several scones I've eaten before. Love it! Will definitely make it again!
PamKarasz 1y agoThese are so yummy! I've made them a few times now. I've also used raisins instead of cranberries once, and did pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts another time, and sesame seeds another. Always perfect!

gotisj 9y agoI like this recipe very much, it was a bit dry for my liking (but I find must sone to be) so I made a simple orange zest sugar glaze that made a amazing difference!!
