I don't claim to be able to find all the recipes here that include cranberries & oranges, but when one slaps me in the face, I usually pay attention, as I did with this one! I was generous with the orange zest in the scones & also included a bit of minced zest in the glaze as well ~ ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE FLAVOR OF THESE BERRIES & ORANGES together, & I think the combo of both the dried & fresh cranberries added a very tasty touch! A wonderful keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #36]
