      Absolutely amazing recipe. We ate part of one one day, and the next day it was still as fresh as the first. The other one I froze, and two weeks'd have thought I'd just made it. By far the best scone recipe I've ever had. Hmmmm, I have some blueberries in the freezer too!!! Thanks for a terrific recipe. *UPDATE:* Dec 4/08 - Because I love these scones so much, I decided to share it with some friends in the form of a gift jar. First I mixed the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar together. Then in a separate bowl mixed *dried* cranberries and the orange zest. I put half the fruit into the bottom of a 3 cup capacity glass preserving jar. Then added the dry mix. You will need to add this in batches, tapping down with the bottom of a glass to pack it tight. Then add the remaining dried cranberries and zest. Seal the jar and decorate. Don't forget to write the instructions out to attach to the jar.

      This is a wonderful recipe. The scones turn out so light and moist. I can see how it would be perfect for Christmas morning. I made them this morning for breakfast and the smell of the orange and cranberry made me think of Christmas.

      I love this recipe. I had dried cherries on hand so I eliminated the orange rind and used the cherries. It was great. You could probably use any kind of dried fruit to change the pace of this classic.
