Cranberry, Coffee, White Chocolate Chip Scones

Thanksgiving weekend I had several people over for dinner and the entire weekend had dinner and overnight guests coming and going at our Pennsylvania house. It was sort of like running and B&B and I loved it.

By Sunday evening at the end of the long weekend my goal was not to have to shlep tons of food back to the city. So in addition to sending leftover packages home with people, I baked with leftover ingredients in the race to empty the fridge.

These were made for breakfast for guests with leftovers of heavy cream, cranberries, coffee and a half used bag of white chocolate chips. A quick internet search revealed the perfect recipe from My Baking Addiction and they were a hit. My husband, who generally eschews sweets, ate several. Highest compliment ever.

I used Jamie's recipe to the letter but swapped out white chocolate chips for the semi sweet  in the scone recipe and used white chocolate instead of unsweetened chocolate in the glaze as well and added loud cranberries to the mix. The flavors all came together beautifully.

Follow this recipe from My Baking Addiction. Substitute white chocolate for semi sweet in the scone recipe and add 1 cup of fresh cranberries.

Swap out the unsweetened chocolate for white chocolate in the glaze.


  1. Yum, white chocolate and cranberry is one of my favourite flavour combinations!

  2. What a delicious breakfast send off for your weekend guests. You keep serving up wonderful treats like this and you will never have a weekend to yourselves again ;)

  3. I cannot begin to tell you how GOOD these look! I would line up for these if you had a B&B:)
