Orange Cranberry Scones

Tangy dried cranberries and luscious orange make these scones hard to keep around for long. They are great for breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea, or anytime you like.  So simple to make and they keep  for quite a few days in a tight sealed container.  If you’re looking to give a delicious gift to a special someone, these would be it.
