I agree that the dough was very wet. I added about two tablespoons of flour in the kneading stage. I used Sweet Black Cherries instead of Cranberries, as I could not find Cranberries in the store. The dough rose quite a bit, and the results were caky, but the flavor was great!!!
These low-fat scones are filled with cranberries and topped wtih coarse sugar, but still come in at only 5 grams of fat per serving.
