Chocolate – Fresh Cranberry Scones

Cleaning out my pantry one day I found a bag of self-rising flour. It’s not the usual flour I purchase, but I’d had to include it in my purchases one day to complete a grocery store deal. Not wanting it to go to waste, I searched for recipes that used self-rising flour. After some tweaking of a few different recipes, I came up with this delicious scone. If you’ve got chocolate chips in your pantry and some fresh cranberries in your fridge or freezer, you are set for a great breakfast or teatime snack.

(If you don’t regularly stock self-rising flour, you can use regular flour and add 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt to each cup of flour.)

  1. I got the dough on the board and realized the recipe doesn’t say when or how to add the chocolate chips and cranberries! I ended up sticking them on top of the dough before cutting it. Hope that’s right…they’re in the oven now. This is my first attempt at making scones, so I’m pretty clueless on the process.
