DIRECTIONS

  • FOR THE SCONES: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F & grease a cookie sheet.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda & sale, then with a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in the cranberries, vanilla chips & the 2 teaspoons of orange zest, before adding the yogurt & the 1/3 cup of buttermilk. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Shape dough into a ball, & place it on the prepared cookie sheet. With floured fingers, press or roll the dough into an 8-inch round, then cut the round into 8 wedged, but DO NOT SEPARATE THE WEDGES.
  • FOR THE TOPPING: Brush the dough with 1 to 2 tablespoons of buttermilk. Then, in a small bowl, mix the 1 tablespoon of sugar with the 3/4 teaspoon or orange zest & sprinkle that over the dough.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown. Immediately remove from the cookie sheet & place on a serving tray. Let cool for 5 minutes, then separate the wedges & serve warm.
