Table of Contents

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, chilled and diced
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 1 large egg


In a larger mixing bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Combine well.

Then mix in the butter, cream, and egg, keep on making until a dough forms. Then mix in the cranberries and sugar, as well as the orange zest. Mix lightly.

Remove the dough from the mixing bowl, and knead, on a floured surface, until the dough is nice and stretchy.

Shape into circles (about 6 inches), then cut that circle into wedges, to resemble scones.

Then place the scones, as you make them, into the air fryer basket.

Set the temperature of your air fryer at 365 degrees F. And set the time for 10 minutes.  About 1/2 way done, check the scones for doneness, as the exact time will depend on your air fryer.

Plate, serve, and enjoy!
