For the Master Gardeners

I made these for my Master Gardener class this week.

Orange scones with dried cranberries
Heat oven to 400F/200C

Mix together:
1 cup flour (white or wheat, or mixed)
1 cup ground whole oats
4 teaspoons baking powder
pinch salt

Cut in, until mixture resembles coarse meal:
5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" chunks

Then add:
1/2+ cup plumped dried cranberries (to plump, immerse in water and microwave on high for 2 mintues)
Zest of 1 orange

Whisk together:
1/3c honey
juice of one orange
1/3 c sour cream
1 egg

Add the liquid into the dried mixture until thoroughly mixed. This is a very wet dough, for drop scones. (Add a little flour if it's too sticky.) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake in a hot oven until lightly brown, about 12 minutes.
