Nutritional values

The high proportion of antioxidant plant substances from cranberries protects the body from free radicals and helps prevent premature aging of cells.

Instead of cranberries, you can also use other dried fruits such as raisins, chopped dates or apricots.

Preparation steps

Fresh Cranberry Scones preparation step 1

Halve the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the pulp with a knife. Mix butter with honey, vanilla pulp, lemon peel, salt, cinnamon, 8 oz flour and baking powder. Add the milk little by little and work into a smooth dough. Knead in cranberries and chopped almonds.
