Bakery Style Cranberry Orange Scones! These scones are perfectly soft and fluffy on the inside and crisp and crunchy on the outside. They are bursting with cranberry and orange flavor and make the perfect Fall breakfast!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add cranberries and brandy to a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute. Leave the plastic wrap on and allow the cranberries to cool before removing the plastic wrap. I let mine cool while I am working on the rest of the steps.
Next combine milk and orange juice and stir to combine. Let sit for 5 minutes. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the mixture for brushing on top of the scones.
Add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter and orange zest to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse until the mixture resembles pea sized crumbs.
Add in the remaining milk mixture (everything but the 2 Tablespoon that is reserved) and pulse for 10 seconds or until the mixture comes together. Make sure not to over mix.
