   Makes 16 to 20
   
   Preheat oven to 450 F.  Grease and flour baking
   sheets.  Sift flour, sugar and salt into deep bowl.
   Stir in peel.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles
   coarse meal.  Blend in eggs and just enough milk or
   buttermilk to form soft but not sticky dough.
   
   Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface.  Gently
   roll or pat dough to about 1/2-inch thickness, lightly
   flouring as necessary to prevent sticking.  Cut out
   rounds using 2-inch flourd biscuit cutter. Set 1/2
   inch apart on prepared baking sheets.  Brush with
   cream. Bake until scones are golden brown, 12 to 15
   minutes.
