This recipe adds a touch of luxury to the humble, classic scone. Rich white chocolate and sharp cranberries offer great variety to this baked goodie. A soft delicious texture, serve this moreish treat with thick clotted cream and strawberry jam for an extra sweet finish. Nutella or melted chocolate wouldn’t go a miss either. Cut in half and sandwich together.

  • ¼tsp salt
  • 55g softened butter
  • 20g caster sugar
  • 50g dried cranberries
  • 50g white chocolate chips

could you use fresh raspberries instead of cranberries and would t be same weight or less? Possibly leave it too soggy?
