Here’s this month’s Bonus Recipe Challenge: Ina’s Cranberry Orange Scones. Have you made these scones before? Are you planning any additions or substitutions? (P.S. The posting date is Thursday, June 18.)
First time ever to make scones, and they were not as difficult as I thought they would be. I read reviews of the recipe before baking and noted the weak orange flavor, so I increased the orange zest a bit. They turned out tender and flavorful.
I am probably going to make these Monday or Tuesday night. I haven’t made this particular recipe before but I had already planned on upping the orange factor and I’m glad I read these reviews to confirm my decision.
thoughts on using blueberries (fresh) in place of the cranberries? DH isn\’t a fan of cranberries and i have a pint of blueberries to use up. i\’m just not sure how the combo of blueberries and orange would work.
