  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.

  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and cranberries.

  4. With a pastry cutter or fork, blend in butter until it’s pea-sized, being sure not to overwork the dough.

  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, lemon juice and lemon zest. Gently fold into the flour mixture until moist crumbs form.

  6. Transfer mixture to a large piece of plastic wrap. Use wrap to gather crumbs together.

  7. Press dough into a 1-inch thick disc about 5 inches in diameter. Peel away plastic wrap.

  8. With a sharp knife, cut the disc into 8-10 wedges.

  9. On the prepared baking sheet, arrange scones 1 inch apart. Lightly brush with egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar.

  10. Bake until golden brown, about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  11. Cool and serve.
