What are scones? They're British tea-time treats very similar to biscuits (the kind you find at Popeyes), except sweeter. And in this month's subscription, we want to give you something that you can make in a jiffy, without any special equipment!
To amp up these scones, our baker has added some special mix-ins. These buttery treats are filled with caramelised white chocolate chips and cranberries to balance out the flavours.
If you're not a great fan of plain ol' white chocolate, then you should try caramelising it! Instead of making it sweeter, caramelising gives it a beautiful golden brown colour, and a toasty flavour which lends depth of flavour to whatever you add it to.
This recipe gives you 8x huge scones. They're tall, fluffy, and tender - what you want in a good scone. And if you're thinking of making them again, simply switch up the mix-ins with whatever you're feeling - dark chocolate, chocolate chunks, chopped pistachios/ any nuts; the possibilities are endless!
Store leftover scones in an airtight container at room temperature (< 3 days) or in the fridge. Don't forget to toast / warm them up in the oven before serving! Best served with a side of cream/jam, and tea of course.

PSLE marking days = all 3 kids home all day for 4 days! 😱 So the husband relieved me by bringing Noey to the office with him, leaving me with the easier child. Easier because she doesn’t have exams, which means we could spend the time leisurely on things like baking! We got took out our @bakestarters box and made ourselves scones for tea. Only 2 left for the picture because we ate the rest and shared some with our neighbours! These white chocolate cranberry scones were so yummy we are planning to make more tomorrow. 😋
