Posted by: Tuddles  Tue, 23 Mar 2004, at 1:29 p.m.

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1 TBSP finely shredded orange peel
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg product
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, orange peel, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Stir together buttermilk, egg, vanilla. Add to flour mixture. Stir with a fork until just moistened. Carefully stir in blueberries.

Turn onto lightly floured board and knead lightly. Pat dough into circle on baking sheet (approximately 7"). Cut dough into 8 wedges. (I separate slightly so they bake more evenly.)

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.

These are also very tasty with just the orange zest or with fresh cranberries.
