3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, diced 
1/2 cup dried sweetened cranberries

Add chilled butter; using fingertips, rub in until coarse meal forms. Mix in cranberries and walnuts. Add cream and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Toss with fork until dough comes together in moist clumps, adding more cream if dough is dry (It will be dry - add more cream!).

Cut each round into 6 wedges.Transfer to baking sheet; brush with glaze.  Bake scones until golden and tester comes out clean, about 18 minutes (With more cream added I baked my scones for another 4-5 minutes).
