Combine flour, 7 tsp. sugar, orange peel, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a small bowl, combine cranberries, orange juice, milk and egg. Add to flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms. On a floured surface, knead 6-8 times. Pat dough into an 8" circle.

Personal Notes:
I use the dried orange peel you can buy in a jar made by Spice Island. I also mix some cinnamon in with the sugar that is sprinkled on top and I'm sure I use more than the 3 tsp.

The recipe can be doubled (why bother with only 8).
They freeze well.
