Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Step 2: Beat buttermilk and egg in small bowl and set aside
Step 3: In a large bowl, measure flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Step 4: Cut in butter until mixture resembles small peas. (I keep butter in the freezer to use for biscuits and scones, cut the amount required and grate it.)
Step 5: Mix in cranberries, sugar and orange rind
Step 6: Add buttermilk mixture and stir until soft dough forms
Step 7: Using your hands, form dough into a large ball and place on floured surface
Step 8: Knead about 10 times Pat into two circles about 1 inch thick, place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Step 9: Score the tops of both circles to make 8 wedges on each, if making for a buffet, for regular scones, score each circle into 4 wedges.
Step 10: Bake scones for 15-20 minutes
Step 11: While still warm, brush with butter and sprinkle with icing sugar
