These giant, soft cranberry biscuits have a texture and taste that resembles a light, fluffy scone. It’s also a favorite quick snack or breakfast item for my kids!
This is a super easy recipe for soft cranberry biscuits! Simply add the ingredients together into a dough, scoop, and then bake it! Since there is no butter used, we do not need to cream butter with sugar. So I find this quite easy and time saving!

How Do We Make These Soft Cranberry Biscuits?
This is a dairy-free recipe. We don’t need butter for this easy soft cranberry biscuit recipe. The oil in the recipe makes the cookies light and airy. Of course if you prefer a more buttery taste, you can try melted butter.
All you need to do is to simply mix the wet and dry ingredients together. The dough will be quite wet.
I like to make this when we need a quick snack, or if I don’t have time to prepare for breakfast the next day. This biscuit is quite light and fluffy, so it’s a great choice for breakfast too!

What Ingredients Do I Need For These Soft Biscuits?
- Caster Sugar
- Eggs: You can use medium to large sized eggs, about 55-60g each.
- Oil: Any neutral tasting oil would be good!
- Vanilla Extract: I like to use Nielsen Massey vanilla extract. You can also use vanilla essence.
- Top Flour: Either top flour or cake flour will work!
- Ground Almond
- Baking Powder
- Dried Cranberries
How Do They Taste Like?
It tastes like a scone, but fluffier! Adding ground almond also makes it more flavorful and fragrant.
If you don’t like dried cranberries, feel free to swap it with raisins or chocolate chips. These biscuits use quite a bit of baking powder to lift it up, especially because there is no creaming of butter for fluffiness. I use aluminum-free baking powder for a peace of mind, which does not impart a metallic taste into the biscuit as well.
Can I Make Them In Advance?
Absolutely! You can make them the day before, and store the baked cranberry biscuits in airtight container. They should be good for another 1-2 days further in normal room temperature, in the airtight container.
I have not tried freezing the baked biscuits yet. So if you tried freezing them, let me know!
