  • Combine 3/4 cup milk and vinegar in a bowl; let stand until milk is curdled, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender. Smooth remaining butter clumps with hands; stir in milk mixture, cranberries, and pecans. Knead until dough comes together in a ball.

  • Place dough onto a floured work surface. Roll out with a rolling pin to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into long, 2-inch wide strips with a sharp knife; cut strips into triangles. Transfer to the baking sheet. Brush tops with egg white.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

  • Combine confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons milk in a small bowl; mix until combined. Drizzle over scones.

Great scone recipe hubby and I went back for seconds. I used frozen cranberries instead of dried walnuts instead of pecans as I had none pastry flour as I am trying to use it up and almond milk. I did need to add a splash of milk to get the dough to the consistency I wanted. We will be making this one again!

I added cinnamon and used brown sugar instead of white. I also added flaxseed ground up in place of 1/2 c flour. Delicious!

The only thing I did differently was toast my pecans and add a bit of orange zest other than that followed recipe as written. These were delicious light and fluffy with a wonderful flavor. Will be making again for Christmas morning to go with our coffee!
