Delicious! These were very flavorful, with a nice pleasant citrus taste from the orange with a little tart bite from the cranberries. Very colorful, and nice and moist, too! Great with my coffee, definitely a keeper! Thanks, Bergy!

These were very good, and were much enjoyed by DH and 2 year old DS. I used Smart Balance for the butter and cut the sugar back just a smidge, and I used oat flour for half of the flour. I think the combination of these things made the scones brown a bit more quickly than they might otherwise, but they were still delicious. Thanks for posting! Made for Let's P A R T Y!!
