Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon for dusting
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 stick cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream, for brushing scone tops


  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1 lemon (approx. 3 tablespoons)


  • Baking Sheet
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Install the dough blade in the XL Precision Processor® Bowl. Place all dough ingredients, except cranberries and heavy cream, in bowl. Install the lid, then select DOUGH.

  • Step 3

    When program is complete, add the cranberries, select PULSE, and process until the cranberries are evenly distributed throughout the dough.

  • Step 4

    Lightly flour a clean work surface with 1 tablespoon of flour. Roll the dough out into a 10-inch round, 1-inch thick, then cut in 8 equal triangles.

  • Step 5

    Transfer the dough triangles onto the prepared pan and brush with heavy cream.

  • Step 6

    Place the pan in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, allow scones to cool slightly.

  • Step 8

    While the scones are cooling, prepare the glaze. Wipe the bowl clean, install the chopping blade, then add all glaze ingredients. Install the lid, select LOW, and process until evenly combined, stopping to scrape the sides as necessary. Press LOW again to stop the program when ingredients are evenly combined.

  • Step 9

    Allow the scones to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then drizzle with the prepared glaze and serve.
