This blog is for the posting of Vintage Recipes. I have inherited recipes from both my grandmothers, mother, aunts, etc over the years. I am also a cookbook collector with several old cookbooks in my possession. My goal here is to share with you older recipes that have been lost to many. I hope you will enjoy my blogs and some old memories will be revived by some of the recipes. Note:To save the vintage value of these recipes, I make no changes. You see the original recipe as written.

OLD FASHION CRANBERRY SCONES
I have no idea how old this recipe is. I get requests from time to time for old fashion scone recipes so when I saw this on my Mr. Food email I thought some of you would be interested.
3 tablespoonsstick butter, chilled and cut into pieces
2/3 cupsweetened dried cranberries
2 teaspoonsgrated orange rind
3/4 cupnonfat buttermilk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, baking soda, salt, 2 tablespoons sugar, and cream of tartar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 forks until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cranberries and orange rind, tossing well. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Sprinkle remaining flour evenly over work surface. Turn dough out onto floured surface; knead 4 or 5 times. Divide dough into 2 portions. Pat each portion into a 5-inch circle on prepared baking sheet . Cut each circle into 4 wedges, cutting to, but not through, bottom of dough. Sprinkle each circle evenly with remaining sugar.
