Ingredients

  • 3 cups (450g) self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup (65g) dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup (95g) white choc chips
  • 2 tsp icing sugar mixture
  • 50g butter, chilled, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups (310ml) milk
  • Extra milk, to brush
  • Melted white chocolate, to drizzle

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 220°C. Combine the flour, cranberries, choc chips and icing sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre.

STEP 2

Add the milk to the flour mixture and use a round-bladed knife to stir in a cutting motion until a soft, sticky dough forms.

STEP 3

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until the dough just comes together (don’t overwork the dough). Use your fingertips to gently pat the dough out to a 3cm-thick disc.Use a lightly floured 5cm round cutter to cut 16 discs from the dough, reshaping the dough if necessary. 

STEP 4

Lightly dust a 20cm square cake pan with flour. Arrange the scones, side-by-side, in the prepared pan. Lightly brush tops with extra milk.

STEP 5

Bake on the top shelf of the oven for 12-14 mins or until the scones are golden and sound hollow when tapped. Set aside to cool completely. Drizzle scones with melted chocolate and set aside to set.
