How are you doing today? Well, my day started out a little crazy. My car wouldn't start this morning due to the -30 weather, and the car wasn't plugged in properly so it was frozen. Dan came home from work with a friend to boost me and that took about 30 minutes to get the car going. Because of all the craziness, I missed my morning shift and I think I got frost bite.
Seeing as I was stuck in my home all morning, I made some of these yummies. They are basically cookies, but whatever we will call them scones ;)
Here is what you need:
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup softened butter (olive oil works as well. The consistency will be slightly different, but still delicious)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup or less of chopped semi sweet chocolate
- one orange grated with the juices squeezed
Mix up all the dry ingredients. Flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
Make a little hole in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients there. Add the egg, milk, butter, orange peel and squeezed juice.
Mix in the chocolate and cranberries.
Bake the scones at 425F in a preheated oven on a greased sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes. This recipe makes one dozen.
Enjoy this yummy treat! I know I enjoyed one too many.
Here are some pics from our weekend. The weather was so mild that we were outside the whole weekend!
