CRANBERRY ORANGE SCONES

This effort came from the need to use some craisins before they got really stale.  You see, I buy the industrial size bag at Costco and use them mainly on my salads, so by the time I get to the bottom third of the bag, they're getting a bit firm.

So being the scone lover that I am, I knew I could find a recipe for cranberry scones.....and this one turned out to be as yummy as I had hoped.
There are times when I need something sweet, but not too over the top and to me, a scone fits the bill.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups Bisquick baking mix
½ cup orange marmalade
½ cup craisins
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. orange juice

Sugar Coating:
¼ cups sugar
1 egg beaten

*optional drizzle

DIRECTIONS: 

Combine Bisquick, marmalade, cranberries, spices, 2 eggs and juice until moist.  

Turn dough onto a floured board, sprinkled with flour.

Roll into a 9-inch circle.  Cut into 8 wedges using a floured knife.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Beat the third egg in a small bowl and brush on the scones.  Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Allow to cool.  I chose to make a powdered sugar drizzle using OJ as my liquid. 

NOTES:  Next time, I'm not going to make my circle as large, since I want my scones to be a bit taller.   I also recently read another recipe that said to slice into wedges, but not separate.  I'm thinking that will also make them a bit plumper.   Finally, I want to pick up some decorator sugar crystals so the sugar coating looks and tastes even better!

I put the leftovers in a freezer bag, and re-heat as the mood hits me.  

Enjoy!
