For the mix

Tea bags make a great gift tie for a jar of homemade scone mix. Don't forget to include instructions for homemade gifts that require baking.


2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Place flour mixture into the bottom a wide-mouthed jar. On top of flour, in this order, layer 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup dried cranberries, then 1/2 cup dried walnuts. Tightly seal jar and band with baking instructions, as follows:

Baking instructions:

1/2 cup chilled, cubed butter

1 large egg

1/2 cup sour cream

Granulated sugar, for sprinkling

Place scone mix in a large mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until coarse crumbs are formed.

In a separate bowl, beat egg, then blend in sour cream.

Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into the scone mixture until just moistened.

Place dough on a lightly floured surface, then pat into an 8-inch circle. Cut dough into eight triangles.

Place triangles on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; sprinkle triangles with granulated sugar.

Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Remove scones to wire rack to cool. Serve scones warm, or at room temperature, with jam.

Makes 8 scones.
