  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with pastry blender (until texture is like coarse sand). Add cranberries.

In a separate bowl, beat one egg with the orange juice. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and mix until just combined.

Knead about 10 times on a floured surface. Cut dough into 2 pieces. Shape each piece into a round disk. Cut each round disk into 6 pie-shaped pieces.

Brush tops with beaten egg and half & half mixture. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
