      1/2   c            Margarine, reduce-cal

   1.  Using a fork, in large bowl combine flour, sugar,
   orange peel, baking powder, and baking soda.  With
   pastry blender, cut in margarine until mixture
   resembles coarse crumbs.  Add cranberries and
   currants; stir to combine.  Add buttermilk and vanilla
   to flour mixture and stir to combine (mixture will be
   dry).  Form dough into 2 equal balls.
   
   2.  Preheat oven to 400 F.  Sprinkle clean work
   surface with 1 tablespoon reserved flour.  On floured
   surface, using fingertips, work one-half of dough into
   6-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick.  Cut circle into
   6 equal wedges; place wedges on nonstick baking sheet,
   leaving a space of about 1 inch between each.  Repeat
   procedure, using remaining flour and dough. Bake until
   lightly browned, about 10 to 15 minutes.  Remove
   scones to wire rack and let cool.
