Orange Cranberry Scones

After the raging success of the now infamous Cheesy Biscuits I made for you a while back, I thought you might like a sweeter, more dessert-like option; and – since I believe they are highly underrated – cranberries immediately sprang to mind.  I happened to have an orange or two floating around the place, so I threw one of those in, too.  And thus Orange Cranberry Scones came into existence. Then I ate them all.  Well, I can’t be giving you anything that hasn’t been thoroughly taste-tested, now can I?  Now, while we know that the things that make us fat the fastest are all the things that are not in these scrumptious scones, I would not recommend eating an entire batch of these in one day.  I’d spread the love out over several days.  Or share them with people you adore.  Or both.

Here’s what an unassuming non-ketoer messaged me upon sampling one of these delicious Orange Cranberry Scones.

M: That was fantastic!!! thanks :-D

Carrie:  They were an experiment, were they OK?

M: very good :-)  simply sinful!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D

Carrie: ha! Not a bad review given they are wheat-free, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and unhealthy-fat-free ;-)

M: WOW!!!!  woulda never guessed.  amazing.

These Orange Cranberry Scones taste like the holidays. But they also taste like summer. And they give you a chance to eat one of our most underrated berries all year long. I’m a big cranberry fan and I think these tart little gems of the berry world should go mainstream. Who’s with me?!

  • freidiaHello Carrie,

    I was wondering if you have a cracker recipe? Something that could be changed up if one liked. Say by adding rosemary or maybe something else. A good solid basic recipe. Thank you, freidiaReplyCancel
