Step 1

PREHEAT oven to 400. In a small bowl, combine cranberries, brandy, and orange zest; microwave for 25 seconds. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in butter until there are no lumps larger that 1/4 inch. Stir in cranberry mixture. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk(if dough is crumbly stir in a little more until a smooth dough is formed.)

KNEAD dough on a lightly floured surface until it holds together. Form dough into a ball and cut in half. Put dough on a cookie sheet and flatten each piece into 1/2 inch thick round. With a floured knife, cut each round in eighths. Brush each scone with 2 teaspoons of buttermilk. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
