  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter. Stir in cranberries, confectioners; sugar and orange peel; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cranberries. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead 6-8 times. Divide in half. Pat each into an 8-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm with cranberry-orange butter.

I loved this recipe! If you add too much flour more that what is in the recipe your scones will turn out heavy and dry. If you think the dough is too soft just make sure your board is well flour...

I *love* cranberries, but most recipes call for dried ones. They do not have the zing of fresh! So I went through and found all the recipes I could with fresh cranberries, and I decided to try...
