2/3 c buttermilk, milk, plain or vanilla yogurt
1 large egg
3 c flour
4 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
8 T butter, cut up
1 c fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 c sugar
1 t grated orange peel

Heat oven to 375. Combine yogurt and egg. Beat smooth with fork.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir to mix well. Add butter and cut in until mixture looks like fine granules. Add sugar, cranberries, and orange peel; toss to distribute evenly. Add egg mixture and stir with a fork until a soft dough forms.

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 5 to 6 times, just until well mixed. Flatten to 8" round. Cut into 12 wedges. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
Optional: egg wash top of scones before baking.
