A tangy, citrus flavored scone to wake you up in the morning.


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 rind
1/2 cup Butter, cut up
2/3 cup Buttermilk
1 cup dried Cranberries
1 tablespoon Milk
1 tablespoon Sugar


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 out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times. Pat into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges, and place 1 inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Brush with milk, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes or until scones are golden brown.
