      These scones were thick and I was not sure they would be cooked throught with only 15 minutes. But they were. I used the food processor. And added the cranberries in it. When it was time to add the buttermilk and eggs, it was also in the food processor. The dough was really sticky, so I added flour to my hands and to the scones while giving them their shape. I did the glaze. This morning, I reheated my scone in the microwave for 15 seconds. They're moist and taste very good. Not too sweet. Great taste of cranberries and orange. Thanks VickiAk :) Made for I Recommend tag game

      Delicious! Just the right balance of sweet, tart and orange. I had never used eggs in scones before. They give these more of a cake-like texture. Nice and light. I didn't use the glaze and I don't think it was missed. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
