    1. Preheat oven to 210°C (450°F). Line baking tray with grease-proof paper.
    2. Put Scone Mix and water into a mixing bowl and mix for 1 minute on a slow speed. Scrape down, add cranberries & orange zest then mix for 1 minute on a medium speed.
    3. Mould dough into a ball then rest for a few minutes under a piece of grease-proof paper.
    4. Roll out the dough to 15mm thick on a lightly floured surface and cut dough into rounds using a 75mm cutter (to weigh 100g each) then place them on the prepared baking tray. Scrap dough can be re-used but needs to be rested for a few minute before re-using.
    5. Leave to rest for 15 minutes before using the beaten egg to glaze.
    6. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown  and sound hollow when tapped on the top.
    7. Allow to cool before serving.
