I bought some orange cranberry scones at the grocery store and used with a spread that i had bought in the Smokies, well now they stopped carrying those scones and i loved them, i found this recipe and tried it( i don't remember where i got it, i had it jotted down, so it isn't mine but the cream cheese spread is) but they are really good, better than the ones i bought at the store
