In-Season Recipe Swap: Cranberries!

Cranberry Almond Scones recipe

This week's in-season recipe theme is cranberries! :)

I recently created these Cranberry Almond Scones and they're delicious! Joshua says they're one of his favorite scone flavors (I've been making lots of scones lately!).

These scones have a fun festive flavor, and a lightly sweet glaze on top... which is achieved by brushing heavy cream over the scones and sprinkling with sugar before baking. Very easy and yummy! :)

Scones are quick to make and since they're not too sweet, they're a perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack (with hot tea!). :)

Now, a couple recipes from previous years:

Cranberry roll-up freezer cookies recipe

If you have the time, these cranberry roll-up freezer cookies are pretty and tasty! They involve a lot more preparation than the scones, but in the end, they're a yummy slice-and-bake cookie! :)

Cranberry Apple Muffins recipe

This is an old picture, but these cranberry apple muffins are fabulous!! These muffins have a lovely dark color from the spices in them. :)

Double cranberry crumb cake recipe

I created this Double Cranberry Crumb Cake recipe a few years ago for a recipe contest using tea. Very sweet, moist, and flavorful!

Cranberry Orange Muffins recipe

Joshua loves these cranberry orange muffins! (I'm not as fond of orange flavors in breads...)

Have a great week!

I am so very! excited to try those cranberry roll-up freezer cookies!!! :)
I know, this is the Taste of Home website, but this is my family recipe......

Very cool! :)

I've had your cranberry cookie recipe on my to-try list for awhile...and finally got a batch in the freezer today for our church's annual Thanksgiving potluck Sunday! I'm looking forward to tasting them. :-) It's my first time making a freezer cookie, too. I think I'll make them again for our church's Christmas cookie exchange next month since they were a lot easier to make than I expected.
