Craneberries & Orange Scones

The first time I ate scones was in London , about thirteen years ago and I can garantee it was love at first bite ! When Fall arrives, this type of comfort food becomes more than a pleasure, it turns into a real urgency ! Whether to find in them flavors of an happy past or to try new flavors that will build equally new sweet memories, the truth is that this  autumnal sweet smells like home sweet home and has become an habitué here at home!


  • 450g flour
  • 80g sugar
  • 2 tea spoons baking
  • 1 coffee spoon baking soda
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 180g cold unsalted butter [ use Mimosa ] 
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 1 package of cream
  • 1 package of cranberries

Heat the juice of an orange in the microwave and soak the cranberries for about 30m . Reserve . In a large bowl place flour , baking powder , baking soda, involving all well . Add butter, sugar and the orange zest. Knead everything with your fingertips and in the meanwhile , join in the cranberries and the orange juice . Add  a package of cream as well and stir everything with a fork . Pour the dough in a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is homogeneous. Place the scones on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 180 º until golden .

A primeira vez que comi scones foi em Londres, há cerca de treze anos atrás e posso dizer que foi amor à primeira dentada! Sempre que o outono chega, este tipo de comida reconfortante torna-se mais do que num prazer, numa verdadeira urgência! Quer seja para encontrar neles sabores do passado feliz ou testar novos paladares que guardarão igualmente novas doces memórias, a verdade é que este doce outonal que cheira e sabe a lar doce lar já se tornou um habitué cá de casa!

  • 450g farinha
  • 80g açúcar
  • 2 colheres chá fermento
  • 1 colher café bicarbonato de sódio
  • raspa de 1 laranja
  • 180g manteiga sem sal fria [uso Mimosa]
  • sumo de 1 laranja
  • 1 pacote de natas
  • 1 pacote de arandos

Aqueça sumo de uma laranja no microondas e mergulhe os arandos durante cerca de 30m. reserve. Numa taça grande coloque farinha, fermento, bicarbonato de sódio, envolvendo bem. Adicione  manteiga, o açúcar e a raspa da laranja. Amasse tudo com a ponta dos dedos e entretanto, junte os arandos e o sumo da laranja. Junte, ainda, um pacote de natas e mexa tudo com um garfo. deite a massa numa superfície polvilhada com farinha e amasse até ligar a massa. Coloque os scones num tabuleiro e leve ao forno pré aquecido a 180º até dourarem.

  11. I love scones, I love oranges, and I love cranberries. Fortunately, I like next door to Wisconsin, so we get fresh cranberries, which are glorious. Here is my recipe for fresh cranberry sauce that I make for our Thanksgiving holiday: Simmer 3 cups of sugar in 3 cups of water for 10 minutes. Rinse and add 3 bags of fresh cranberries. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to a simmer again. Simmer and occasionally stir cranberries for about 45 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in a large bag of frozen raspberries (or 3 cups of fresh raspberries). Let cool, then store sauce in the refrigerator. Yum!
