This recipe is so easy and a perfect breakfast when you need to grab and run! These have dried cranberries in it which makes them very healthy. I even cut back on sugar a little and add some extra cinnamon, to make them even more healthy! Since we're going away this weekend, I needed breakfast for us for next week. These are perfect because they easily stay for a week. I adapted them from this simple scone recipe. Substitute whatever your family likes best!
Onto the giveaway! The giveaway is basically a basket of "my favorite things". It includes (but is not limited to) Penzey Spices, favorite products (many of which have been reviewed here), and this wonderful cookbook! This is a go-to cookbook of mine, and I hope that it will become that for someone else as well. I wasn't compensated for this, so it's all my hard-earned money and love, which I think makes it pretty substantial. It's the perfect culmination of 100th post, 6 months blogging, my 25th birthday, and the start of spring! Lots to celebrate...
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup of cold salted butter, chopped into tablespoons
2/3 cup of milk (I use skim)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Then, drop the butter into the mixture. Use your hands to combine, forming crumbs. Then, add the milk and cranberries and stir JUST until the dough forms. Then, in the bowl, knead the dough 4-5 times. Split the dough in half and put each one in a greased 9-inch circle pan. Score the top and bake for about 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Split into 8 wedges and serve warm or cold. These stay good for up to 10 days in an airtight container!
Now for the important stuff...how to enter! You must be a blog follower of mine and you must leave a comment on this post. One week from today (3/25), I will close the giveaway and use random.org to pick the winner! Since the beginning, I've been lucky to have other bloggers inspire and encourage me, and other people actually enjoy listening to what I have to say! Currently, that amounts to 12 followers. Each of you, if you choose to participate, will receive one extra comment. Just comment here twice and add in the second comment that you were an "original" follower.
Until the next time my oven is on...
