Made these with frozen cranberries and just added a little extra sugar. Also made a glaze to drizzle on top. These were delicious. Can't wait to make them again.
I can't tell you how many times I have made this recipe. It is absolutely delicious! I do put my own twist on it though. I increase the butter to a 1/2 cup of butter, add almond extract and add more Craisins. I then form it in a circle and refrigerate usually overnight, and as soon as I take it out of the refrigerator, it's baked at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or so until done. As soon as it comes out of the oven, I drizzle a glaze all over the top which is a combination whisked together of almond extract, water and powdered sugar. This soaks into every place on the scone. The texture of the scone is more like a biscuit and not dry and crumbly as a usual scone would be. I haven't meant anyone yet whose eaten it and not fell in love.

Very tasty, can't guit eating them.
Great with coffee
I added a powdered sugar glaze in the morning, and they were excellent.
This worked very well for me. I did not have orange zest so I used the Craisin that are orange flavored and it was a great substitution. I put in a few more Craisin.
