Ingredients

1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/4 c
sugar
3 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 c
butter
1/2 c
dried cranberries
2 tsp
grated orange rind
1/2 c
buttermilk
1
egg
1 c
powdered sugar
2 to 3 Tbsp
orange juice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in the cranberries and orange peel.
3
In a small bowl, mix buttermilk and egg; add to dry ingredients all at once, stirring until mixture is just moistened.
4
On a floured board, knead gently a few tiimes, but not too much. Form into a patty on an ungreased cookie sheet; cut into 8 wedges with a knife but do not move it.

Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 15-25 minutes or until light golden brown.
6
Mix together powdered sugar and orange juice into a glaze; drizzle over scones. Separate scones and serve warm.
