  • Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and matcha powder in a bowl. Make sure to sift the matcha powder into the bowl. Mix and set aside.
  • Grate the frozen butter with a boxed grater. Add to the flour mixture and combine with 2 forks until the butter pieces are pea sized. Set aside in the fridge while you mix the wet ingredients.
  • Add heavy cream, egg, and vanilla extract to a small bowl or liquid measuring cup. Whisk together until combined. I preferred using a liquid measuring cup because it was easier to pour into the dry ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add the cranberries. Mix until you see large clumps form. If the dough looks dry, add a teaspoon of heavy cream at a time until it comes together.
  • Prepare 2 baking sheets by covering them with parchment paper.
  • Empty the dough onto a floured surface. Bring all the pieces together into a 7 inch disk. Cut the dough with a sharp knife into 7 triangles. They should look like small pizza slices. Transfer each piece onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush each scone with heavy cream for that golden crust. Lastly, sprinkle demerara/turbinado sugar on top of each scone.
  • Place the scones in the fridge for 45 minutes to cool. This will reduce spreading in the oven.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).
  • Once done cooling, bake the scones for 15-20 minutes until the tops have a light golden brown color.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
