3 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup lard (or butter)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp orange juice concentrate
2 tsp orange peel
3/4 cup partridgeberries, cut in half
Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and orange peel. Cut in lard (or butter) with a pastry blender. Stir in partridgeberries. In a separate bowl combine milk, sugar, egg and orange juice concentrate. Gently combine the two mixtures until just blended. On a floured board shape the dough into a circle approximately one inch thick. Score the top of the dough 1/4 of the way through the dough to create triangle shaped scones. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven until golden brown (approximately 20 minutes). Remove from oven and drizzle with a mixture of 1 cup icing sugar and 1/8 cup orange juice. Add more orange juice if necessary.
