Step-By-Step

1Add butter, apricots and craisins; mix until butter is pea-sized. Use fingers to work butter into dry mixture.
2In separate bowl, combine egg and egg white, buttermilk and orange rind.
Add this liquid to dry ingredients and mix it just until it comes together.
3Using your hands knead several times (6-8) in bowl, then place dough on lightly floured board.
4Form dough into a 12 x 6 inch rectangle. Cut into 12 triangular pieces.

At this point you may sprinkle coarse sugar granules on top.
5Bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes or until lightly browned.

You may use a powdered sugar glaze drizzled over the warm tops.
