Cranberry Buttermilk Scones

I don't plan to turn my blog into a recipe site. But I had to share one more recipe.

3 c. flour (all-purpose)
1/3 c. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. butter
1 c. buttermilk
1 c. dried cranberries
1 tsp. grated orange peel
1 T. milk or cream

In food processor, dump the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Pulse a couple of times. Add the butter. Mix until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk and mix just until moistened. Add the orange peel and cranberries. Pulse a couple of times to incorporate them into the dough. Turn on a floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a ball and pat into a circle about an inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with milk. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
