Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 35mins
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, orange peel, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In small bowl, combine cranberries, orange juice, cream and egg. Add to flour mixture and stir just until soft dough forms.
On floured surface, gently knead 6-8 times. Pat dough into 8″ circle. Cut into 10 wedges with a pizza cutter or a sharp knife. Place wedges on a baking sheet.
Brush with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and funky on a wire rack.
Combine the powdered sugar and enough orange juice for good consistency and drizzle over scones.
