[pictured fresh out of the oven]

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange zest (or orange peel)
1/2 cup butter, cut up (very cold butter) (not vegetable shortening!!)
2/3 cup buttermilk (or 2/3 cup of cream/milk and 1 tablespoon vinegar set out for 1/2 hour)
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 teaspoon each: cinnamon, nutmeg (optional)

1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon sugar
(for sprinkling on top) or use icing recipe below (I use both)

1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon orange juice
Cream by teaspoon until right consistency achieved.

COMBINE first 6 ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk and dried cranberries, stirring just until moistened.

TURN dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times, Pat into a an 10-inch circle. Cut into wedges, and place 1 inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet (I use pizza pan). Brush with milk, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon milk.

BAKE at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until scones are golden brown (do not overbake!!).

Remove from oven and cool. If using the icing as well, drizzle by tablespoons on scones while still warm.
