Cut open your pomegranate and remove about 1 cup of pomegranate arils. A fancy name for the little red seeds inside. You can actually purchase these already cleaned at some grocery stores.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the cold butter into small pieces and cut it into the flour mix. A fork or potato masher is great, but you can even use a food processor to do this. Once the butter is cut in, fold in the pomegranate arils. This helps make sure they are evenly distributed into the scones.

I love how bright and colorful the pomegranate stays through baking. They also stay whole which gives a nice pop of flavor when you bite into them. The orange zest gives a perfect balance to the tartness of the pomegranate. Simply perfect!
