Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons heavy cream, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in 5½ tablespoons of cream and the eggs. Fold in the cranberries and almonds. Transfer to a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until the dough is sticky. Roll into a circle of 1-inch thickness, cut the circle into wedges and place on prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the remaining cream and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake 13–15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
