"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Janet Boehm


3 c. self-rising flour
c. sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1 c. buttermilk
c. orange juice
c. chopped cranberries
peel or zest of one orange

1 c. powdered sugar
2-3 T. orange juice

Combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is coarse and crumbly. Add cranberries and orange peel/zest. Combine buttermilk and orange juice. Add just enough of the liquid mixture to make a soft dough. Turn out on a floured board and cut with a biscuit or cookie cutter.

Place scones close together on a cookie sheet sprayed with vegetable oil. Bake at 400 until lightly browned about 10 minutes. Brush with glaze while still hot. Enjoy!

Scones are served best warm and may be reheated in foil before serving.
