 Heat oven to 375 degrees. Measure buttermilk in 2 cup glass measure, beat
 in egg with fork. Put flour, baking powder, soda and salt into a large
 bowl. Stir to mix well. Add 8 tbs. butter and cut in with a pastry blender
 or rub in with your fingers, till mixture looks like fine granules. Add
 cranberries, sugar, and orange peel: toss lightly to distribute evenly. Add
 buttermilk mixture. Stir with a fork until a soft dough forms. Turn out
 dough onto a lightly floured board and give 5 to 6 kneads, just until well
 mixed. Form dough into a ball, cut into 8 wedges. Form each wedge into a
 ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until
 medium brown. Remove to wire rack. Brush with the 1 tbs. of soft butter.
 Let cool, uncovered, at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with jams,
 jellies and/or plain or lemon yogurt. Makes 8 scones. Formatted by Lynn
