Chocolate Cranberry Scones

Chocolate Cranberry Scones I was grocery shopping with my husband the other day when we saw whole cranberries on sale.

I have never bought whole cranberries.

I have never eaten raw whole cranberries.

I had no idea what to do with a package of raw whole cranberries.

So I bought them. 🙂

And then they sat in my fridge for several days challenging me before I got brave enough to experiment.

I finally decided to try a simple scone recipe. Why did I wait so long? These scones were wonderfully tart and yummy! And … since one of them was only 4 Weight Watchers points – I could enjoy them without guilt!

Cranberry Chocolate Scones

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup raw or frozen cranberries
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)

Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is fine crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk, then the cranberries and chocolate.

Divide the dough into 6 circles on a prepared cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.


One thought on “Chocolate Cranberry Scones

  1. real cranberries were something that my Mom always cooked for Thanksgiving & Christmas adding sugar to make a sauce. I really like it and has so much more flavor than any of the canned stuff!!

    You might want to put some cranberries in your oatmeal cookie recipe with chocolate chips. I have a couple of recipes that use dried cranberries, but the fresh ones would really bump up the flavor.
