    Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F and prepare two baking sheets by lining with parchment or lightly spraying with spray oil.

  • 400 Min

    Step 2

    In the bowl of a food processor, whiz the cranberries with the brown sugar and orange zest until lightly chopped. Remove to a separate large bowl. Back in the food processor, whiz the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut the chilled butter into small pieces and pulse with the flour in the processor just until roughly crumbled.

  • 2 Min

    Step 3

    Mix the flour and butter mixture with the cranberries in their bowl. Add the milk and stir just until the dough comes together; it's fine if there is still crumbly flour.

  • 5 Min

    Step 4

    Sprinkle the countertop or a board with flour, and dump the dough out on it. Cut out rounds using a biscuit cutter or glass, or pat into a thick circle and cut into wedges. If you aren't planning on using the rum glaze, sprinkle the scone tops with sugar.

  • 20-25 Min

    Step 5
