For the orange scones
To prepare the orange glazed scones first heat the oven to 220°C (200° fan).
Grease 2 baking trays.
Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Gradually stir in the milk, cranberries and orange zest to form a soft dough.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.
Roll or pat out 1 cm thick. Cut into rounds with a floured 6 cm cutter. Lightly knead together the trimmings and cut out more rounds
Place well apart on the baking trays and bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden.
Cool the orange scones on the baking tray for a few minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
