Back story: I tried an Andes Candy mint chocolate scone recipe from a card I found in the grocery store. It was awful. Just horrible. Downright disgusting. But then I got to thinking ... if I replaced the Andes with cranberries, and added some orange flavoring, and used white chocolate instead of regular ...
Orange-Cranberry Two-Bite Scones
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
1-1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped slightly in food processor
1 tsp plus 1/2 tsp orange extract
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup white baking chips or chopped white chocolate
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Mix dry ingredients. Cut butter in with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse meal. (This can also be done in a food processor, using only half the flour mixture. Add the remaining flour mixture in the bowl before adding cream.)
Sprinkle 1 tsp orange extract over cranberries. Stir berries into dry mixture.
Add cream and 1/2 tsp orange extract to dry ingredients. Mix lightly with fingers just until the dough holds together. Wrap in plastic and chill about 1/2 hour.
Roll out into a 6" x 8" rectangle. Cut into 2-inch squares, then cut each square diagonally in half to create 24 triangles. (A mezzaluna or pizza cutter works really well for this.)
Place scones on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
Melt chips; drizzle over cooled scones.
