Cranberry Scones
I made these for Christmas morning and my parents loved them! The were fluffy and tender. In place of the half and half I used 1/2 cup of lowfat plain yogurt and 1/4 cup 2% milk.. I thought this gave a good consistency - the dough was a bit wet but it formed into circles easily enough. Also, I made 8 larger scones instead of twelve, partly because I did not realize quite how much they would rise and expand when baked. I would definitely recommend using a large cookie sheet and leaving ample room in between the scones. Parchment paper made for easy cleanup. Overall, a delicious recipe.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread
I made this for Christmas dessert and everyone loved it! It was delicious, and it really was pretty simple to make. In addition, it made the house smell amazing. I just sprinkled it with powdered sugar before serving. I made it exactly as written. I didn't feel it needed extra spices; it tasted like I expected it to taste, but I can understand how some people might prefer it to be "more ginger-y." This will definitely become a Christmas tradition.

Cranberry Orange Loaf
Made this to go with breakfast this Thanksgiving, and everyone loved it! I didn't use the nuts (my dad doesn't like nuts) and I substituted applesauce for all of the shortening. I thought it was delicious - will definitely make it again.
