Cranberry/Orange Scones
Linda Anderson, October Bus Trip to NY Gardens

This recipe produces a soft, crumbly scone.  I made three round “patties” of the dough in order to make smaller scones.
 
Mix in bowl and set aside:
2 C. flour
1/2 C. sugar
2 1/2 t. baking powder
cinnamon
a shake of salt
 
Grate in cuisinart or with a grater:
1 stick of FROZEN butter
 
Mix in another bowl”
1/2 C. cream (heavy or half/half)
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
 
1 C. of dried cranberries or more?
 
Sequence:
Mix grated butter into bowl of dry ingredients
Add cream, egg vanilla mixture
 
Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet
 
With floured hands pat dough into 3 circles and place on parchment paper
Cut circles into 6 or 8 triangles before baking.
 
Bake in 400  degree oven on medium low rack for 20 minutes or so (slightly brown)
Do not overbake.
 
Drizzle a glaze on baked scones:
