Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 20 mins 35 mins 8 scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240g)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50g)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed (113g)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (70g)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (85g)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk (120ml)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  5. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the milk and vanilla extract. Gradually pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead the dough a few times until it becomes smooth.
  7. Shape the dough into a circle and flatten it to about 1-inch (2.5cm) thick. Use a sharp knife or a biscuit cutter to cut the dough into 8 wedges.
  8. Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch (2.5cm) of space between each scone.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown on top.
  10. Remove from the oven and let the scones cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving.
