FRUIT BUTTER:

  • ⅓ cup vegan butter

Instructions

  • Combine the ground flaxseed and water. Set aside until you’re ready to mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, 7 teaspoons sugar, orange peel, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.
  • In a small bowl combine the cranberries, orange juice, cream, and flaxseed/water mixture. Add to flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.
  • On a floured surface, gently knead 6-8 times. Pat dough into an 8 inch circle. Cut into 10-12 wedges.
  • Separate wedges and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (optional). Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.
  • At 12 minutes brush the scones with the glaze, then put back in the oven for about 3 more minutes or until lightly browned.
