200 grams all purpose flour/maida
100 grams unsalted butter chilled
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup butter scotch chips
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons badam mix (brand of choice)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1.In a large mixing bowl sift all purpose flour along with salt and baking powder.Add sugar,badam mix and combine.
2.Cut the chilled butter into small cubes and add to the flour mix. Mix the butter with flour using your finger tips.Continue till the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
3.Now add cranberries and butterscotch chips and mix well.Start adding milk little by little and form a dough.The dough should come together quickly and not very stiff.Use as little milk as required.
4.In a large cookie sheet (I used a pizza pan) spread the dough and form a circle of 1 inch height.Cut the dough into 8 triangles using a sharp knife.
5.Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes at 200C.Serve warm.
1.I used MTR badam feast instead of vanilla metioned in the recipe. I think even saffron or cinnamon will be great.
2.I just wanted to finish off the butter scotch chips so used it here.It is optional or you can replace with chocolate chips or any other nuts.
3.I did not use any glazing as in traditional scones.
