    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix flours, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, the orange peel, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in 1/3 cup milk, the orange juice and cranberries just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Expert Tips

  • Use dried blueberries instead of the cranberries if you'd like. You can also substitute grated lemon peel for the orange peel.
