1Preheat oven to 375°.
2Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal (I used my hands). Stir in cranberries and rind. Add milk, orange juice and egg stirring just until moist.
3Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 15 times or until smooth.
4Form into an 8 x8x square. Cut 4 even rows into the dough. Cut into triangles. I got 6 scones per row. (sorry no picture, my hands were to sticky to pull out my camera)
5Carefully Transfer dough to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper
6Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Let them slightly cool for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile make your glaze.
7In a small bowl add your powdered sugar and orange juice (I juiced a 1/4 of an orange) mix until a consistency you like. Add more sugar if to thin, add more juice if to thick. Drizzle over the top of scones.
