I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that orange and cranberries is the most festive combination! Nothing spells Christmas as much as oranges and cranberries together. These scones have zest of an entire orange, a lot of dried cranberries and the rich-velvety English Breakfast tea from TeaBox. It is a very simple recipe and the scones are to die for. Just make sure you don’t over work the dough once it’s ready. Get baking yáll!
