7cm Cookie Cutter & A Lined Baking Tray

Step 1 of 3

Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C for fan ovens) Gas mark 4. Rub the cold diced butter into the flour and sugar until it forms bread crumbs. Add the cranberries and mix through. Slowly pour in the evaporated milk while stirring together until a soft dough is forced

Make sure your butter is chilled before you start the recipe. This way your scones will remain fluffy on the inside but crisp on the outside.

Step 2 of 3

Tip the dough on to a floured surface and roll to an inch thick then use a cookie cutter to cut out the scones. Re-roll until all the dough is used up.

Step 3 of 3

Place the scones on a lined tray and brush with remaining evaporated milk. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.

Why not use a little of the juice from the orange in the recipe to beat into some freshly whipped cream. Add a little icing sugar if it needs it and serve with sliced strawberries.
