Cranberry Orange Scones

“Moist and scrumptious, these scones come out perfect every time. I savour the chewy dried cranberries and sweet orange glaze. There’s nothing better than serving these remarkable scones warm with the delicate orange butter.” —Karen McBride, Indianapolis, Indiana

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 7 teaspoons sugar, orange zest, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the cranberries, orange juice, cream and egg. Add to flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.
  2. On a floured surface, gently knead 6-8 times. Pat dough into an 8-in. circle. Cut into 10 wedges. Separate wedges and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with milk; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  3. Bake at 400° until lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack.
  4. Combine glaze ingredients if desired; drizzle over scones. Combine orange butter ingredients; serve with warm scones.
