directions

FOR THE SCONES:

In a bowl, combine the flour, 7 teaspoons sugar, orange peel, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the cranberries, orange juice, half-and-half and egg. Add to the flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms. On a floured surface, gently knead 6-8 times. Pat the dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 10 wedges. Separate the wedges and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with milk then sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.

FOR THE GLAZE (optional):

Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the scones.

FOR THE ORANGE BUTTER:

Combine the ingredients, and serve with warm scones.
