Cranberry-Walnut Scones1

Ingredients

1 tablespoon brown sugar for sprinkling scone
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup cranberries fresh or dried
1 cup chopped walnuts
plus extra for brushing scone tops

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat it with non-stick cooking spray.
2
In a large bowl, stir flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
3
With a pastry blender or your fingertips, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cranberries and walnuts. Make a well in center and gradually stir in buttermilk to form a ball. Knead lightly. Do not overwork; dough will be sticky.
4
Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll each portion into an 8-inch round, about 1/2-inch thick. Cut each round into 8 wedges. Place scones on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with buttermilk and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Bake 14 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
5
Makes 16.
