Mix first five ingredients. Cut in butter, stir in fruit, chips and orange peel. Make well in center of mixture; add milk and orange juice and vanilla. With fork, stir until dough pulls away from the bowl.

(1st option) - Leave dough in bowl and refrigerate overnight. In morning cut the lump of dough into 4 parts while still in the bowl, then place divided dough onto a cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
Pat each portion into a circle (about thick) and cut each circle into four pieces.

(2nd option) -Form dough into a ball and turn onto a lightly floured board. Knead gently once or twice and cut dough into four parts. Pat each portion into a circle (about thick) then place divided dough onto a cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Note: Even a short time in frig will result in a flakier scone but may require an extra minute or two of baking. Makes 16 scones. They freeze well.
