Whole Wheat Maple Cranberry Scones

December 22, 2016

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a bunch of fresh cranberries when I was in Martha’s Vineyard and froze them in anticipation of holiday cooking. I love how the maple syrup adds sweetness while the cranberries bring out the tartness, and the wheat flour gives a nice nutty flavor to these hearty scones.
