When I made my first scones a couple of years ago for my niece, we both fell in love with them, eating a whole plateful in one sitting. Since that time, I have experimented with a wide variety of ingredients, especially fruits and juices, to create different flavor combinations. This version is a favorite because the juice and cream combination create a buttermilk-like mixture that perfectly frames the raisins and cranberries and makes these light, flaky and delicious!
