Lemon-Walnut Scones with Cranberry Cream Cheese
Purchase ground walnuts (sometimes labeled walnut meal) at health-food stores, gourmet markets, and some supermarkets. Or grind your own in a food processor or spice or coffee grinder in short pulses (don't overdo it, or you'll end up with walnut butter). You'll need about 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts to yield 1/4 cup ground. Chopped cranberries tint the cream cheese mulberry. The scones are best served warm, but you can prepare and refrigerate the cranberry mixture up to four days in advance.
