½ teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons chilled butter

½ cup dried cranberries

2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

3 cup buttermilk

2 teaspoons milk

1 teaspoon sugar

1. Combine the flour, ¼ cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Stir in the dried cranberries and lemon peel.

2. Pour in the buttermilk and stir with a fork until the mixture holds together. Gather the soft dough into a ball and gently knead a few times on a floured surface. Pat out dough to an 8-inch circle and cut into 8 wedges. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet and brush the tops with the milk. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.

3. Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven 15-20 minutes, until golden. Serve warm.
