Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut up
  • 1/2 cup cranberries, chopped
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions:

Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a cookie sheet. Mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until you get fine crumbs; a food processor works best for achieving this consistency. Place mixture in large bowl, and add cranberries and raisins.

Beat milk and egg with a fork, and add milk and egg mixture to flour mixture; stir with fork until moistened.
