Cranberry Orange Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 tablespoon butter,cut into small pieces
1/4 cup cranberries, dried
2 teaspoon orange peel, grated
1/4 cup non fat milk
1/4 Cup fresh orange juice
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Squirt of fresh orange juice
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal (I used my hands). Stir in cranberries and rind. Add milk, orange juice and egg stirring just until moist.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 15 times or until smooth.
Form into an 8 x8x square. Cut 4 even rows into the dough. Cut into triangles. I got 6 scones per row. (sorry no picture, my hands were to sticky to pull out my camera)
Carefully Transfer dough to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Let them slightly cool for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile make your glaze.
In a small bowl add your powdered sugar and orange juice (I juiced a 1/4 of an orange) mix until a consistency you like. Add more sugar if to thin, add more juice if to thick. Drizzle over the top of scones.
Eat and Enjoy!
