I am obsessed with scones. Scones with berries, scones with nuts, scones with herbs, scones with cheese! These Cranberry Walnut and Brie Scones tick all of the boxes. They’re sweet, savory and have a little bit of funk to them, thanks to the ripe French brie Colin got on sale at Whole Foods a few weeks ago. I’m so glad to be finishing it up because I’ve been smelling that brie every single time I open the fridge. You know that feeling when you ask yourself every time the waft comes toward you, “what’s rotting in the fridge?”
So I got the idea for the cranberry walnut brie combination after Thanksgiving passed and I had some odds and ends leftover–cranberries, thyme, and lots of cheeses (mascarpone, goat, cheddar and brie). So these scones made perfect sense.
They’re based off of my classic scone recipe. The mascarpone is what keeps these scones moist and fluffy but if you don’t happen to have any on hand you can sub cream cheese.
