You’ll never go back to making scones the same again…the citrus twist to a classic cranberry scone is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. A perfect pastry to enjoy in the morning, afternoon, or evening.


• 3 cups Florida Orange Juice • 1/4 cup powdered sugar • ½ cup butter, frozen • 2 cups flour • ½ cup sugar • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder • ½ teaspoon salt • ½ cup heavy cream • 1 egg, plus one egg white • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 1 cup dried cranberries


Directions: • Grate the frozen butter into a medium bowl. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine with your hands, working quickly, until the dough comes together in pea-sized pieces. • Whisk together the heavy cream, egg, and vanilla, then add to the flour mixture. The dough will be very sticky, but you should be able to work with it. Add a little more flour if needed. • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Shape the dough into a ball, then squish into a disc, about 8” across. Wrap with plastic, and let chill for at least 15 minutes. • Preheat oven to 400ºF. • In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the Florida Orange Juice and powdered sugar. Bring to a boil and cook down until slightly thickened. • Arrange the chilled scones on a lined baking sheet, brush with the egg white, and bake for about 10-12 minutes. • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before drizzling the orange juice glaze on top. Enjoy!
