Whole Wheat Cranberry Orange Scones are easy to make and perfect for the holidays! Each scone has hints of orange zest mixed with tartness from the fresh cranberries.

  3. Use a pastry blender, or two knives, to cut butter until it resembles small peas and add the butter to flour mixture.
  4. Stir in the cranberries.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the egg and yogurt.
  6. Stir the yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
