Cranberry Orange Cream Scones

One of my favorite things about winter is cranberry-orange everything. That flavor combo is like a little bright spot in the middle of the cold harsh winter, and I can’t get enough. I decided to make my favorite mini two-bite cream scones in this classic flavor combo to give as edible gifts, but unfortunately not enough of them lasted through the night. *whistles innocently* Luckily, if you do want to pace yourself with these too-easy-to-pop-into-your-mouth Cranberry Orange Cream Scones, they freeze great. Keep them in a gallon-size freezer bag and thaw one or two at a time “as needed.” LOL They thaw quickly at room temperature.
