3/4 cup whole milk, reserve 2 tablespoons for brushing
1 large egg
Juice and zest of 1 orange
1 cup dried cranberries
2 packets (2 tablespoons) Sugar In The Raw
Preheat oven 425 degrees and prepare a sheet tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, ginger, baking powder, salt and butter. With 2 butter knifes, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
In a bowl, whisk together egg, milk, orange juice and zest. Add to flour mixture, add cranberries and mix just until combined.
Dump dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently for a few minutes (just until flour is incorporated) and shape into a disc, about 9 inches round and 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate.
Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes.
