“It was the morning after Thanksgiving with leftovers of cranberry sauce, orange juice and pecans all begging to be eaten. So what to do? Make scones with a Holiday flair!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside if not using a Silpat silicone baking liner.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, and spices in a large bowl. Using a pastry knife, cut butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter are obvious. Stir in nuts and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together cranberry sauce, orange juice, and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Form the dough into a ball.
  4. Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into 10 inch circle and cut into 8 wedges. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes. Scones should be a light brown.
  6. Remove scones from oven to wire rack. Let cool about 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. Mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Adjusting the orange juice to get to the desired glaze consistency (too thin and it runs / too thick and it globs), spread glaze over each scone and dry about 20-30 minutes before serving.
