Cranberry Scones with lime zest

1 and 1/3 c unsweetened flax milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 1/2 cups  flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c cold vegan butter
1 and 1/3 c dried blueberries or cranberries

Glaze Ingredients

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
2-3 tsp lime or lemon juice and/or zest

Mix and taste until it suits your taste

 

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 450F.
2. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
3. In a small bowl, stir together vegan milk and vinegar. Set aside to curdle.
4. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
5. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, mix vegan butter into flour mixture until it looks like sand.
6. Add milk mixture and dried fruit to flour mixture, stir until dough comes together.
7. Form dough into two patties and flatten slightly to about 2" in thickness.
8. Using a sharp knife, slice each patty into eight small triangles for a total of 16. 
9. Arrange all 16 on a cookie sheet, and bake for 12-14 minutes on the center oven rack.  After 10 minutes turn scones on a side to avoid burning the bottom and to brown the other sides.
10. Drizzle scones with glaze while still warm and serve.
