1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
grated zest of an orange
1/2 cup goji berries, soaked
1 stick (8 tbsp.) cold unsalted butter
2/3 cup buttermilk (plus extra for brushing)
coarse sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 400F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar for 30 seconds.

Cut the cold butter into small cubes 1/4-1/2 inch. On low speed, mix until butter is just coated with flour, leaving large chunks. Stir in the goji berries and the orange zest. (Cooks Note: Dried fruits will benefit from a brief soaking in hot water or rum; drain and toss in sugar before adding).

Stir in 2/3 cup buttermilk and mix for about 30 seconds, or just until the liquid is absorbed. (The batter will begin to pull away from the sides of the bowl). Using a spatula, scrape the dough down and form it into a ball.

Tip: To avoid tough dry scones, do not overmix and be sure butter is cold and doesn't melt into the batter.

Lightly pat the dough together into a flattened circle 3/4-inch thick. Place the circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, a silicone baking sheet or a buttered sheet of wax paper. Divide the circle into eight wedges and separate the wedges out leaving a 1/2-inch space between them.

Brush the tops with remaining buttermilk or an egg wash.

Sprinkle with coarse sugar (sanding sugar or turbinado is best for a crisp crust).

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Serve warm with butter and jam or honey or topped with chopped fresh fruit. The tops of the scones may be lightly dusted with confectioners sugar, if desired.
