Full Moon Recipe for August: Cranberry White Chocolate Scones

Hello there, guys, gals, and non-binary pals! Here’s this month’s witch-tinted recipe for Cranberry White Chocolate Scones! It is from Martha Stewart, of all people. First, the recipe; then, me talking about how it is an edible spell!

Recipe Title

  • The Ingredients
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling these out
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of sugar (reserve 1 tablespoon for topping the scones)
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 6 tablespoons chilled, unsalted butter, cut into very small pieces
    • 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon half and half
    • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
    • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • The Way of Preparing
    1. Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C
    2. Whisk together five tablespoons of sugar, flour, salt, and baking powder.
    3. Use a pastry blender or a pair of knives to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
    4. Stir in 2/3 cup half and half until it is just barely moistened.
    5. Fold in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
    6. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface a dozen times.
    7. Gently pat into a 1 inch thick round.
    8. Cut the dough into eight wedges.
    9. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet about two inches apart.
    10. Brush the tops of your scones with the remaining half and half.
    11. Sprinkle the scone tops with the remaining sugar.
    12. Bake until golden brown, about 13-15 minutes, depending on how hot your oven runs.
    13. Let cool on a wire rack. If you’re drizzling with melted white chocolate, let the scones cool completely first.
  • Notes:
    • You can add a teaspoon of orange extract and a tablespoon of orange zest to make these cranberry orange scones.
    • Blueberry white chocolate is also delicious.

Cranberries are all about abundance and love. Cranberry juice, in particular, is a good substitute for ritual wine if you want to do a non-alcoholic version.

Focus on thoughts of abundance and positive energy while making these and they’re the perfect little boost on a rainy summer day.

Happy Baking! I would love for you to send me pictures of yours. And please share any recipes you’d like me to make!
