all purpose flour
cold butter cubed
Pre-heat your oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.

Mix in the cold cubed butter, just like you would if you where making
When the mixture is crumbly and no large chunks of butter remain, stir in the frozen cranberries and brown sugar and mix well.
Add the milk to the cranberry scone dough, and mix until a soft and sticky dough is formed.
turn the dough out on a floured counter-top, and knead two or three times to smooth out the dough. Add a little flout if the dough is very sticky.
With a rolling pin roll out the dough until it is about half an inch thick. Then cut the dough into individual cranberry scones. The shape is entierly up to you but triangles are traditional!
Arrange the scones on your baking sheet, and brush with milk, then sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 400F for 12 to 15 minutes.
Cool the cranberry scones on a wire rack or serve them warm for breakfast or brunch!
Brush the tops of the cranberry scones with milk, and then sprinkle with sugar for a crisp golden crust!
