Everything turned out great! I used raisins in place of cranberries, and it turned out just wonderful. Also,I used an emulsifier for the applesauce-honey glaze, and that worked much better the second time around when I made these.

Very good scones. I doubled the cranberries and used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup whole-wheat. I had a hard time resisting the temptation to add orange zest or to use more cinnamon, but I'm glad I haven't, since they tasted great as written. Milk and honey were much easier to combine after microwaving together for about 20 seconds. My only complaint is about the applesauce-honey glaze, which hasn't worked very well. I would suggest just ignoring this step or just sprinkling some granulated sugar or dough .
