I have been wanting to make cranberry scones for awhile and I wasn't disapointed! These were very tasty, with slightly sweet dough flecked with tart little bites of cranberry. I didn't have the whipping cream so I diluted some sour cream just a little and it worked just fine! Thanks for a treat! Next time, I will make it with the whipping cream.

These were wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly, except I sprinkled turbinado sugar over the tops after I brushed them with cream. Thanks for posting!

So good! My house still smells like cloves. I love it. I used roughly 1 cup of cranberries and piled ("sprinkled") sugar on top before baking. I had to cook them for 25min because they were a little thick. Delicious. Amazing. Ate half of them before remembering I had promised some to my roommates.

I used dried cranberries since I didn't have fresh or frozen. Also substituted cinnamon for the clove. Brought them to a brunch and they were all eaten up. Imagine the flavour is even better with fresh cranberries.

These were so yummy! I'm in a very dry area, so the dough wouldn't stick. I had to add several tablespoons of water. Also, I think next time I'll only do 1 tsp. of cloves. Other than that, this recipe was excellent! Thanks for sharing!

I just made these and they turned out marvelous! Hubby had one right out of the oven with butter ! I took the advice of someone else and added the lemon zest...WOW ! I will make these often...and probably try a few variations to the original recipe....but cranberries and lemon...YUM ....hard to top that combo !

Lovely scone--and I love the clove--I used fresh ground cloves--so the flavor is a real presence. I also like that it is not overly sweet--used fresh cranberries--quite tart. Great combination of flavor.

This is a great recipe to use as a base for scones. I set out to make them exactly as the recipe said, but my grocery store didn't have any cranberries - neither fresh nor frozen - so I had to improvise. I used frozen blueberries and added some lemon zest for fun. The result was wonderful! I have no doubt that using cranberries would result in just as great a result. The basic scone recipe is what makes the difference. I have been looking for a great scone recipe, and I have found it!!! Thank you so much. I can't wait till I find some cranberries. I'll use them, and I think I'll add some orange zest for fun. Wonderful recipe for scone lovers!!
