These scones are fabulous and I make them often. I add dried cranberries along with orange zest. That is the way my family likes them best, although I have added raisins and cinnamon, etc. I found cutting these into 12 scones made them WAY too large. I form my dough into 3 equal discs, then roll each one out, cutting each disc into 8 equal triangles. Use a large pizza cutter for fast work. Then bake as stated, perhaps a bit shorter time. Once they cool completely, I make a thin glaze using powdered sugar and some orange juice and drizzle over the tops. I also like to add a bit of orange zest to the glaze. The nice thing about these scones is that they freeze "great" and you can pull out as many as you want to thaw. This is much easier than freezing them raw, then baking a few each time you want some, as one other reviewer suggested.
