Fluffy, sweet, and tart homemade scones that pull apart like perfect flaky biscuits. Cranberry Orange Scones are loaded with fresh cranberries, orange zest, and are topped with a yummy sweet orange glaze.
How was your holiday weekend? Are you in Christmas mode yet? Have you picked out a tree covered your house in lights and hung all your stockings with care?
Did you listen to The Drifters’ White Christmas on repeat? No? Just me?
What about shopping? I am kind of in a panic about shopping because um… 25 days!
Not to stress you out or anything.
I spent my weekend shopping at Lowes because the freaking bathroom is still besting us. At last count we found a doorway hidden under two surprise layers of wallpaper, moved the toilet to replace the seal, broke the toilet, found more holes covered by wallpaper, and then found a lightswitch hidden in the wall that is wired backwards and ruined Chad’s life for 3 hours yesterday.
Are we the only people that went Black Friday shopping for toilets? I thought so.
Now I know why people write whole blogs dedicated to home remodels.
I also managed to hit Starbucks like 3 times this weekend. Those of you that have a Starbucks on every corner could not possibly imagine the freaky stars that have to align for me to land at my favorite coffee chain once in a month, much less 3 times in a holiday weekend.
Because I know I can make a big batch of Cranberry Orange Scones and eat them all warm and freshly glazed just out of the oven.
These are loaded with fresh cranberries, orange zest, and buttermilk (which makes all the breakfast foods better– think pancakes and biscuits. YES). Then these happy holiday scones are covered in a sweet orange glaze that I actually considered adding to my coffee.
I made these scones tiny because I feel like tiny food is cute, but I’ve included instructions for how to make big fat coffeehouse scones, too. Bonus on the mini scones: They make great gifts.
I made these Cranberry Orange Scones for my terrific friends at Food Fanatic. Did you know I write about breakfast there twice a month? Well I do. Because breakfast is the most amazing, and clearly the best meal of every day.
Yay for December, ya’ll! I’m excited.
