Cranberry Apple Scones
You may have noticed the Noosa spoon decoder game on Twitter and Facebook. The object, is to use the back on your spoon to reflect the message! Grab a spoon and tell me what this says:
There’s some buzz circulating about this foundational flavor. #DecoderSpoon pic.twitter.com/8bJHa815tL

Now, that you’re all excited about the Noosa honey flavored yoghurt, It is time to get excited about their cranberry apple flavor!
I knew I had to use Noosa Yoghurt Cranberry Apple flavor in a baked treat! The flavor is tart, sweet, smooth and rich.
I set out to make scones..
But, scones are one of the few baked goods I have trouble with. They’re usually dry and require a great helping of butter and a dunk into tea. I had to change that! I did my research and found that many use yogurt in their scones for extra moisture!
And so my Cranberry Apple Scones were born 🙂
I also recommend spreading some more Noosa Yoghurt on the top of your scone, like so:
On to the recipe:
*Tip: I recommend a silicon pastry brush, like so:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
- 1 cup halved fresh cranberries
- 2/3 cup Noosa Cranberry Apple Yoghurt
- 2 eggs
- sugar in the raw to sprinkle on top of scones (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
- Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in the cold butter, until a pebble like texture forms.
- In a bowl, whisk together Noosa Yoghurt and one egg.
- Add the yoghurt mixture into the flour, mixing until combined. *Do not overmix*
- Gently fold in the cranberries.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Use a large ice cream scoop to drop 1/4 cup dough onto baking sheet
- Whisk remaining egg and brush onto the tops of the scones
- Sprinkle with sugar
- Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown
- Enjoy 🙂

You brush the egg onto the wet scones?? I feel like the dough is going to stick to the pastry brush :/
Yes you do 🙂 if they are too sticky place them in the fridge for a minute or two.. I used a silicon brush and it did not stick 🙂
Thank you for your reply! My first batch turned out like flat round things… So i added a little bit more flour and the second batch is in the oven, not flat… But i’m not sure what I did wrong. I used laban rayeb and added cranberries, is that why? 😢 next time I’ll use noosa
I would use regular yogurt instead of Laban. I believe the cultures in Laban are different. I hope they still taste yummy 🙂
Ah ok, jazakeAllah kheir!
Of course! Xoxo
