Ingredients

480g flour

60g sugar

10g baking powder

4g baking soda

2g salt

115g cold butter, cut into small cubes.

295ml cream

1 egg

Zest 2 orange

50g dried, sweetened cranberries

65g fresh cranberries, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F

  2. Whisk dry ingredients together

  3. Add the cold butter and toss to coat.

  6. Whisk the cream and egg together. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the cream.

  7. Mix together until the dough is loose and shaggy.

  8. Turn out onto your work surface and press into an 8” circle. Cut into 8 slices (for generous portions) or 12 (pieces for lighter snacking).

  9. Transfer to a pie dish, brush with cream and sprinkle a generous amount of raw sugar on top.

  10. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until golden brown.

  11. Before serving, melt the remaining white chocolate and drizzle on top.
