Prep Time 15 minutes

Servings 8 scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 +1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp unsalted butter frozen
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • cream and coarse sugar for finishing
  • white chocolate for drizzle


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
  • Grate the frozen butter into the flour mixture.
  • Add the frozen cranberries and white chocolate to the flour mixture, and toss to combine.
  • Pour the cream into the flour and gently mix using your hands, until combined. The dough will be slightly dry and perhaps a touch crumbly, but this will result in a flaky pastry.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a disk, about 1 inch thick. At this point you can cut the scones into your desired shape. You can use a biscuit cutter and make rounds, or cut them into wedges.
  • Transfer the scones to a parchment lined baking sheet, and brush lightly with cream, and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the scones are golden brown.
  • Drizzle with melted white chocolate
