Light and tasty whole wheat cranberry orange scones
Ingredients
  • 2 cups (275g) whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup (50g) sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 115g) butter, cold
  • 1 egg yolk (save egg white for glaze)
  • ¾ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and orange zest in a large bowl.
  3. Cut the butter into small chunks, add it to the dry ingredients, and cut it in with a pastry blender (or rub it in with your fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs).
  4. Whisk together the yogurt, milk, and egg yolk, and stir into the dry mixture until a dough forms.
  5. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface, and gently and quickly knead in the cranberries.
  6. Pat the dough into a flat disk about 2 inches thick and cut into wedges.
  7. Transfer the dough to a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet.
  8. If you want crispier scones, separate the wedges a little. If you prefer them soft, leave them touching one another.
  9. Whisk the egg white and brush it over the tops of the scones.
  10. Sprinkle with 1 tsp brown sugar.
  11. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, or until light golden brown.
  12. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
