Cranberry White Chocolate Scones

The very first time I made this recipe my mix-in of choice was dried cherries and white chocolate. I was feeling sentimental recently and  I had cranberries on hand and the result was wonderful!!  There is something about this combination that is perfect. The tartness of the cranberries with the sweetness of the white chocolate- wonderful!  I know I’ve posted about scones before, but I love the versatility of this recipe and the colors are beautiful together.scones- white chocolate cranberry
