Cranberry Lemon Scones will delight your tongue with a bright lemony flavor that is highlighted by small intense bursts of cranberry morsels tucked into each bite!
Y’all, these are seriously so-so good!
Scones, much like a biscuit in texture are versatile; I’m learning they go with practically anything you decide to put with them.
Savory meat gravies, tomato & herb sauces or sweetened up with choices like strawberries, peaches or as the name implies Cranberry and Lemon!
(BTW, I wouldn’t pass one up with just butter & jam either. Just saying…)
As for the lemon aspect to these; my lifetime lemon meter got tanked off as a kid when I use to suck down lemon juice packets. Rest assured these are not like biting into a lemon wedge or drinking concentrated lemon juice. Not even close! While these lovelies do have the zest of 3 lemons they’re not tart.
Your jaw will not seize up nor will your saliva glands over react. *Yay*
The zest lightens the dough just enough to give it a hint of sunshine. 🙂
The freshness of the lemon followed by varied levels of cranberry ending with a sweetened lemon glaze drizzled over the top —
*Holy YUM Moley*

Sink your teeth into a version of your own & come back to share!
By the way, this was my first time to make scones.
I thought my batter was too wet.
Trust me, it was not.
The wet batter cooked to perfection leaving a toasty light brown outside and crumbly inside!
Lately, I’ve become infatuated with all the different varieties I can make.
I followed this recipe exactly but will soon experiment with my own twists to bring you my usual #twofer 🙂
