Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon or orange peel
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Powdered Sugar Icing (optional)
  • Finely shredded Lemon Peel (optional)

Directions

  1. In a very large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon peel. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cranberries. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  2. In a small bowl combine milk and sour cream. Add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Do not over mix.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough about 6 to 8 strokes or until nearly smooth. Place dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Using a lightly floured rolling pin or floured hands, roll or pat into a 10-inch circle, that is 3/4-inch thick. Cover and freeze for 20 minutes or until dough is firm enough to cut; cut into 8 to 12 wedges, but do not separate wedges.
  4. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; drizzle with powdered sugar icing and sprinkle with lemon peel.

Powdered Sugar Icing

Ingredients

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 - 4 teaspoons milk

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar and enough milk to make a drizzling consistency.
