I first made these for a friend of mine from England. She gave them her seal of approval and they are always a hit at breakfast. I serve them with orange marmalade.… Ginny Ciraldo

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/3 cup butter (cold)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 egg, slightly beaten
4 to 6 Tablespoons half & half


Heat oven to 400 degrees. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and orange peel. Cut 1/3 cup butter into flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Stir in cranberries, egg, and just enough half & half to enable dough to form into a ball. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead lightly 10 times. Roll or press into a 9-inch circle; cut into 10 to 12 wedges. Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from sheet immediately. Serve warm.
