-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1/3 cup sugar
-1 teaspoon baking powder (I use double-acting)
-1/4 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-8 tablespoons butter, frozen
-1/2 cup sour cream
-1 large egg, beaten
-1/2 cup dried cranberries (or any other dried fruit)

Sprinkle Scones before baking with:
-1 teaspoon raw sugar (or regular sugar)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a food processor bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate butter into flour mixture using the large holes of a grater; pulse a few seconds to blend. Add the sour cream and egg, and pulse a few seconds to blend. Add the dried cranberries and pulse just until dough pulls away from sides (do not over process, as dough should not be totally smooth!).

Place dough ball on a lightly floured surface and pat into an 8-inch circle, about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. raw sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 even triangles; place scones on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.
