Cranberry-Orange Scones with Orange Glaze: Bread
Prep time:1 Hour
1 cup Butter (unsalted)
5 cups Unbleached white flour

2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 teaspoon Baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat, set aside. Stir together the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cranberries in medium bowl. In large bowl, beat sugar with eggs and butter milk. Stir in orange zest. Add about 2/3 of dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just blended (you may want to use your hands). Add melted butter and remaining dry ingredients and mix lightly.
Turn dough onto floured surface, knead by flattening and folding about 10 times until it no longer sticks. Let dough rest about 5 minutes. Roll out into thickness of about 1 1/2 inches.

Freeze remaining rounds in an air tight container. When ready to bake place them on baking sheet, let stand for 10 minutes at room temperature and bake as before. Makes 24 scones
