Cranberry orange scones 1

By popular demand from my Camp Reveille campers, Chef Michael De Berry has shared his recipe for Orange Cranberry Scones. This was a favorite tasty treat at camp, and also makes a perfect fall dessert! Try Chef Mike's recipe below and let me know if you like it as much as my campers did.

2 1/2 cups of flour 

3 teaspoons of sugar

4 tsp of light brown sugar

2 Tbsp of grated orange peel

2.5 tsp of baking powder

½ tsp of salt

½ tsp of baking soda

½ Cup of cold butter

1 ½ cup of dried cranberries

½ cup of orange juice

¼ tsp of all spice

3 tsp peach nectar 

¼ tsp vanilla extract

¼ of sour cream

2 eggs

 1 can of butter flavored pam


  1. In a metal mixing bowl combine the flour, 7 teaspoons sugar, orange peel, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a small sauce pan, rehydrate the cranberries in the orange juice, peach nectar, vanilla extract and all spice- cool enough that the mixture will not break sour cream & egg once combined. Add to flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms. If the dough is too sticky add 1 to 2 Tbsp of flour to resolve the issue
  2. On a floured surface, gently knead 6-8 times (over Kneading causes the scones to become tough). Pat dough into an 8-in. circle. Cut into 10 wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Chill in the refrigerator for approximately 10-20 minutes. Spray with pam or butter flavored cooking oil or simple melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven at 375° for 12-15 minutes (rotating the tray once at roughly 6 min for even distribution of the color) or until lightly browned.
  4. Remove from the oven to a wire rack to prevent further browning.

Note: remove scones from the tray or baking dish to prevent further browning on the bottom. Remember keeping baked product on the same baking tray removed from the oven, the cooking process continues until
