  • 4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • Grated zest from 1 medium orange about 1 tablespoon
  • 1 cup cold butter cubed
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries halved


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, sugar, and orange zest. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk sour cream, eggs, half-and-half, and vanilla until smooth. Pour over dry ingredients, add white chocolate and cranberries and gently stir until a shaggy mass of dough forms.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead several times until dough just comes together. Divide dough in half and pat each half into a 9-in round. Cut each round into eight wedges and place wedges on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake scones at 425F 12-15 minutes or until tops are golden-brown. Cool scones on a wire cooling rack several minutes and serve warm.
