Sometimes it’s just easier to use your fingers.

Using a blending fork or your fingers, cut in butter until coarse crumbs form. Add chopped cranberries, orange juice, whole milk, and one large egg.

Another option is to pat the dough into a circle and cut it into 8 wedges. Place scones in a scone pan that has been sprayed with baking spray. 

If you don’t have a scone pan, you may use a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, or even a round cake pan. Make sure the scones do not touch each other on the pan.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

Prepare the Glaze:

While the scones are baking, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and orange juice until smooth. Drizzle over warm scones.
