Frozen Butter Makes Light and Fluffy Scones

I love making and eating scones, although I try not to do it too often. I do have a lighter version of scones that you can find here. These are not the lighter version but are made with fresh cranberries and orange juice.

Scones are just one of those treats that is so versatile. You can add just about any fruit, nut, or flavoring. However, not all scones are made equal. Some can be dry. Usually this is a result of over mixing. I like to add frozen butter to my scones. In fact I add frozen butter to muffins and biscuits.

I keep some butter in the freezer and then shave it to add to the scones. This will make the scones nice and light, but don't over mix.

I didn't add a recipe for these scones since there are so many out there or you can try my skinny version. I did cut the cranberries in half before adding to the batter.
