Cranberry Orange Scones

So you’ll grab a box of cranberry orange bar mix at the store.  (Krusteaz , Duncan Hines and Pillsbury all have this in a box.)

Prepare the box mix as the batter, as recommended by the instructions on the box.  Once batter is prepared… add these little special touches, and you’re golden.

Recipe below…

But let me walk you through with photos.  I’m more of a “see it,” kinda gal.

    How many does 1 box make?

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh goodness, you know what? I can’t remember! I’m so sorry. But using the bar mix, it may say on the box how many bars it makes, and that way you may be able to use that as a guide to figure out how many scones it may make. (Keeping in mind that the scones may be bigger than the bars.) I’m sorry I couldn’t help more with this today!

    Wondering if you can use Krusteaz Cranberry Orange mix instead of bar mix?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi there! You know, I’ve never used that, so I’m not sure if it would give a different consistency or not. 🙁 I’m sorry! If you find out, I’d love for you to let us know!

      1. Kathy says:

        I’m a bit confused. You did say above “So you’ll grab a box of cranberry orange bar mix at the store. (Krusteaz , Duncan Hines and Pillsbury all have this in a box.)” But looking on the Krusteaz website they don’t show a “bar” mix. Can I make these scones with the muffin mix?

        1. Jessica says:

          Hi Kathy! I’ve never used a muffin mix for this recipe, so I’m not sure if it will work or not! I’m sorry I can’t help more with that!
