Claudia's Tea Room
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup fresh or dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg white mixed with 1 teaspoon water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 10-inch circle of a baking sheet. In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add cranberries and pecans, tossing to coat. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, juice and vanilla. Add flour mixture, stirring quickly to combine (dough will be slightly sticky). Turn out into a prepared baking sheet and pat into a 9-inch circle. Brush top and sides with egg white. Score the dough with a knife into eight equal wedges. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for five minutes, then serve with orange preserve, butter or cranberry curd.
