Cranberry Orange Scones

Hi everyone!

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of accompanying my mom to go see my grandma at her house. We wanted to have dinner with her, and my mom and I wanted to make her scones from the CookiesandCups cookbook!

My fiancΓ©’s stepmom is the owner/founder of CookiesandCups, and if you don’t know Shelly or her recipes, definitely check them out because they are delicious! I found the recipe in her cookbook, and wanted to show you how delicious they turned out!

Now there is a story behind these scones so bare with me! For those of you who don’t know, I recently lost my grandpa. Before my he passed away, my mom and I promised him we would make him scones from Shelly’s cookbook. He loved scones and I knew Shelly’s recipe was amazing. Unfortunately, a day or two after we promised my grandpa we would make him scones he was put on a strict diet because of the cancer.

The pretty dough!

We never had the opportunity to make them for him, but on Sunday my mom and I finally were able to make them for my grandma. When they were done, we toasted scones to my grandpa because we knew he would have loved them (they came out great). It meant so much to me to finally bake them for my grandma. πŸŠπŸ’› I know my grandpa was there with us, and it was just a great day all around!

The recipe from the cookbook

I love spending time with my family, and I really do enjoy baking something new every now and then! I hope to try more recipes from her cookbook, and I hope to make these scones again sometime soon!

How was your weekend? Do you like baking with your family?
