Dried Cranberry Nut Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chilled butter or margarine
1/2 cup Frieda’s Dried Cranberries, Dried Blueberries, Dried Bing Cherries, or chopped Dried Mango, or Dried Jackfruit
1 extra large egg
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl stir together the flour, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or two knives used in criss-cross fashion, cut in the butter until it resembles small peas. Stir in Soy Nuts and cranberries. Whisk together egg and milk; reserve 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Add remaining mixture to flour mixture, stir quickly just until the dough holds together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead dough gently 10 to 12 times. Pat into an 8-inch circle about 1/2-inch thick; place on a greased baking sheet. Score into 8 wedges. Brush top with reserved milk-egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake for about 18 – 22 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into wedges; serve warm.
