Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 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

Steps

  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees and prepare a sheet tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, ginger, baking powder, salt and butter. With 2 butter knifes, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together egg, milk, orange juice and zest. Add to flour mixture, add cranberries and mix just until combined.
  4. 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.
