Orange Cranberry Scones
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
1 cup fresh, chopped cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the orange zest,
chopped cranberries and walnuts. Stir until just combined. Add the milk and juice stirring until the dough is mixed. With hands, place the dough on a floured work surface, knead gently. Divide the dough in half and pat each piece into a circle on a greased cookie sheet, about 6 inches in diameter and about 1/2 inch thick. Cut each circle into eight pie-shaped wedges.
Bake in preheated 425 degree F. oven for about 15 minutes, until golden colored.
