    Al Al's Note:

    I couldn't find this exact recipe posted, so I am posting ANOTHER cranberry scone recipe. :) My mom makes these and they always turn out moist and flaky. They are especially good if you use dried cranberries that are flavored with orange (I found them at Trader Joe's). Since I don't usually have buttermilk on hand, I combine 1 Tbsp. lemon juice plus enough milk to equal one cup and let it curdle while I am mixing the dry ingredients.

      You can also cut them into circles with a round cookie cutter, but the baking time will be less if you place them on the baking sheet not touching each other.

      This recipe is Great. Made them for my church supper and they eat them up. Also tried with 1 cup coconut in place of canberries and orange. put coconut on top. and a little powered suger glaze. I used my mellon baller and they cooked up Great in about 15 min. Going to have a English Tea and will make these again. Gonna try Lemon and poppy seed. Got to try this user friendly recipe. Enjoy!

      Excellent scones. I didn't have any oranges so I used lime zest. The change was noticeable but still very tasty. My only fault with the recipe was that the scones were dry but many people feel that scones should be dry and crumbly.

      These scones were simply fantastic! They completely exceeded my expectations for flavor and texture. Take the author's advice and get the orange-flavored dried cranberries from Trader Joe's - it adds an extra bit of delicious orangey flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and baked for 16 minutes. Perfect!
