Quote & Picture a day for one week: Day 5 & 6- Monday and Tuesday....and a little bonus.

Day 6 (today)

What comes into our minds when we think about God, is the most important thing about us. - A.W. Tozer

A Foggy Morning

Day 5

"If Love through me, Love of God,
Make me like Thy clear air
Through which unhindered, colors pass
As though it were not there.
Powers of the love of Good,
Depths of the heart Divine,
O Love that faith not, break forth,
And flow this world of Thine. " 

- Amy Carmichael

White Chocolate Orange Cranberry Scones
With no refined sugar*

Dry Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
8 TBSP butter, frozen
1/2 cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
1/3 cup white chocolate chips

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 cup sour cream
1 large egg
2 TBSP + 2 tsp. Honey** 
1/4 tsp. orange extract
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


1.) Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater; use your fingers to work in butter (mixture should resemble course meal), then stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate.

2.) In a small bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients until smooth.

3.) Using a fork, stir wet ingredients into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball.

4.) Place on a lightly floured surface (or onto a strip of wax paper with wax paper folded over the dough), and pat into a 7 to 8 inch circle about 3/4 inch thick. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 - 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature. 


*No refined sugar with exception of white chocolate chips. 
** If you wish to make these with regular sugar, replace honey with 1/3 cup sugar added in the dry ingredients. 

If desired, drizzle with melted white chocolate or an orange sugar glaze after the scones have cooled.
