——-FOR THE CRANBERRY ORANGE SCONES——-

To prepare cranberry orange scones first heat the oven to 190°C (170° fan) gas 5.

Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

Whisk together the sugar, orange zest and juice, buttermilk, vanilla and egg until blended.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and stir in the salt.

Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Stir in the cranberries and thyme, then add the egg mixture to form a soft, slightly sticky dough.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.

Roll or pat out about 1 cm thick. Cut into rounds with a floured cutter.

Lightly knead together the trimmings and cut out more rounds. Place well apart on the baking trays.

——-FOR THE CITRUS GLAZE——-

Stir together the sugar and orange juice until the sugar has dissolved.

Brush the glaze over the scones and bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden.

Cool the cranberry orange scones on the baking trays for a few minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
